Georges G.E. Gielen, Professor of Electrical Engineering Katholieke Universiteit Leuven


This presentation will give a short overview of modeling techniques for analog integrated circuits, ranging from symbolic analysis approaches to more recent advanced black-box approaches. The role of modeling in the design flow will be described, and the perspectives it offers towards circuit optimization and true structural synthesis will be lined out
