Growing digitization of integrated circuits has contributed to making system-on-chips ever more complex. Yet, a substantial portion of a chip consists of analog and mixed-signal (AMS) circuits that provide critical functionality like signal conversion. Over the past several decades, aggressive scaling of IC technologies, as well as advancing the integration of heterogeneous physical domains on chip, substantially complicates the design of AMS components. On the one hand, their modeling and design becomes extremely complex. On the other hand, their interplay with the rest of the system-on-chip challenges design, verification and test. The new technology trends bring enormous challenges and opportunities for AMS design automation. This is reflected by an increase in research activity on AMS CAD worldwide. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together academic and industrial researchers from both design and CAD communities to report recent advances and motivate new research topics and directions in this area.
