Description

Title:Duplex: Simultaneous Parameter-Performance Exploration for Optimizing Analog Circuits
Author(s):Ahmadyan, Seyed N.; Vasudevan, Shobha
Subject(s):Design space exploration
Circuit simulation
Circuit synthesis
Optimization
Random tree search
Abstract:We present Duplex random tree search, an algorithm to optimize performance metrics of analog and mixed signal circuits. Duplex determines the optimal design, the Pareto set, and the sensitivity of a circuit’s performance metrics to its parameters. We demonstrate that Duplex is 5x faster than the state-of-the-art and finds the global optimum for a design whose previously published result was a local optimum. We show our algorithm’s scalability by optimizing a system-level post-layout charged-pump PLL circuit.
