DELIGHT.SPICE is the union of the DELIGHT interactive optimization-based computer-aided-design system and the SPICE circuit analysis program. With the DELIGHT.SPICE tool, circuit designers can take advantage of recent powerful optimization algorithms and a methodology that emphasizes designer intuition and man-machine interaction. Designer and computer are complementary in adjusting parameters of electronic circuits automatically to improve their performance criteria and to study complex tradeoffs between multiple competing objectives, while simultaneously satisfying multiple-constraint specifications. The optimization runs much more efficiently than previously because the SPICE program used has been enhanced to perform DC, AC, and transient sensitivity computation. Industrial analog and digital circuits have been redesigned using this tool, yielding substantial improvement in circuit performance
