Analog and mixed-signal (AMS) integrated circuits (ICs) are essential in many system-on-chip (SoC) and internet-of-thing (IoT) applications. Although design automation for AMS ICs has been researched for decades, modern AMS design still requires much designers’ effort with limited qualified computer-aided design (CAD) tools. Consequently, it usually takes a long design cycle from system to layout design. The proposed special session addresses the state-of-the-art computer-aided AMS design, which consists of four presentations on current progress and new advancement. The topics cover modeling and simulation of statistical characteristics for an AMS system, structural synthesis and modeling of various operational amplifiers, a newly developed open-source analog layout generator and its roadmap, and a layout synthesis methodology through learning and migration.
