Various approaches for finding optimal values for the parameters of analog cells have made their entrance in commercial applications. However, a larger impact on the performance is expected if tools are developed which operate on a higher abstraction level and consider multiple architectural choices to realize a particular functionality. This book examines the opportunities, conditions, problems, solutions and systematic methodologies for this new generation of analog CAD tools.
Ewout S.J. MARTENS obtained the MsC and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium in 2001 and 2007, respectively. For his PhD work, he has been awarded a research fellowship from the Fund for Scientific Research (FWO) of Flanders, Belgium. Currently, he is working as a research assistant at ...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Here is a book of moderate size . very rich in information (multum in parvo) on a new and actual domain 'Analog and Mixed Systems (AMS)'. . The book is written at a high mathematical and abstraction level . . This volume will be an excellent support to research and design engineers working in AMS. It is a beautiful example of the power of mathematical tools in industrial problems." (Dumitru Stanomir, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1156, 2009)
