AbstractABSTRACT: Silicon Technologies, Inc. (STI) proposes to extend the results of a DARPA sponsored contract # W31P4Q-11-C-0046,"Design Tools For Highly Regular Circuit Geometries"to develop a set of design tools and analog cells specifically for use in automating the design of Rad Hard analog circuits. STI was able to prove feasibility of a revolutionary new set of design tools for analog design. The new design tool was developed to permit the analog designer to design and simulate layout extracted circuits without the need to pass the design to the physical layout team. The tool has shown the potential to facilitate reuse and reducing the cost of porting analog circuits by 2-4x over conventional methods. And in fact has been used to manually design a proof of concept RFID chip. BENEFIT: This project will develop an automated analog design tool to be used in the porting of analog ic's. It will reduce the cost of design and porting by 2-4x.
