New Advances in Circuit Simulation
Moderator:
Xin Li - Duke Univ.
With increased complexity of circuits and systems, efficient simulation continues to be critical yet challenging. The first paper describes an efficient methodology for sensitivity analysis of an event-driven objective function. The second paper proposes a novel algorithm combining exponential integrators and Krylov subspace algorithms for nonlinear circuit simulation. The final paper develops a fast approach for electromigration analysis of multi-branch interconnect trees.
