Analogue modelling and design using a symbolic environment

Objective

- Available algorithms for the symbolic analysis of linear circuits will be made more robust, gaps will be closed and the application range will be widened. A first product release for linear circuit analysis is planned at the project midterm.

- Non-linear problems like DC large-signal behaviour as well as modelling approaches will be tackled in the second half of the project.

- Furthermore, methods of application will be developed, and application to product design will be demonstrated. Commercial figures will be provided to show benefit and return-on-investment to users

An interactive circuit design environment will be provided combining advanced symbolic, numerical and graphical techniques that allow the modelling, characterisation and design of analogue circuits. Symbolic techniques will further be explored in tolerance analysis and design centering. The environment will be developed for exploitation as a commercial CAD tool. An AMADEUS interest group will be established to involve potential external users in definition of requirements and assessment of results.
