This e-book offers a close precis of analysis on computerized structure of device-level analog circuits that was once undertaken within the overdue Eighties and early Nineties at Carnegie Mellon college. We specialise in the paintings in the back of the production of the instruments known as KOAN and ANAGRAM II, which shape a part of the middle of the CMU ACACIA analog CAD procedure. KOAN is a tool placer for customized analog cells; ANANGRAM II a close quarter router for those analog cells. we attempt to give the motivations in the back of the structure of those instruments, together with special dialogue of the delicate expertise and circuit matters that needs to be addressed in any winning analog or mixed-signal structure instrument. Our strategy in organizing the chapters of the e-book has been to give our algo rithms as a sequence of responses to those very genuine and intensely tricky analog structure difficulties. ultimately, we current various examples of effects generated by way of our algorithms. This learn used to be supported partly by way of the Semiconductor study Corpora tion, by way of the nationwide technological know-how beginning, through Harris Semiconductor, and through the foreign enterprise Machines company Resident examine software. ultimately, only for the list: John Cohn was once the fashion designer of the KOAN placer; David Garrod used to be the dressmaker of the ANAGRAM II router (and its predeces sor, ANAGRAM I). This e-book was once architected via all 4 authors, edited by means of John Cohn and Rob Rutenbar, and produced in comprehensive shape through John Cohn.
