This paper presents an equation-based design methodology for optimization of analog building blocks using genetic algorithms. The proposed methodology uses the analytical equations that describe the circuit's behavior as a function of the design parameters such as the transistor dimensions and/or the passive component values. These parameters are then subject to an optimization process, using genetic algorithms, in order to fit the circuit performance into the desired specifications. This design methodology is suited for fast redesigns of analog blocks into new technologies
