Circuit Design and Routing For Field Programmable Analog Arrays

Accurate, low-cost, rapid-prototyping techniques for analog circuits have been a long awaited dream for analog designers. However, due to the inherent nature of analog system, design automation in analog domain is very difficult to realize, and field programmable analog arrays (FPAA) have not achieved the same success as FPGAs in the digital domain. This results from several factors, including the lack of supporting CAD tools, small circuit density, low speed and significant parasitic effect from the fixed routing wires. These factors are all related to each other, making the design of a high performance FPAA a multi-dimension problem….
