The efficient design of integrated circuits and systems is practically only possible with the use of software solutions. While the design of digital circuits is largely automated, analog components are for the most part still designed manually. With increasing miniaturization, however, this task is becoming increasingly complex and it is, thus, highly prone to errors. The result is long development cycles and high costs.
With intelligent IPs, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS offers an applied solution for the automation of analog integrated circuit design.
