    The use of a switched-capacitor filter design program, Auto-SC, is discussed. The program can be used to design both single-ended and differential switched-capacitor filters by a number of different methods. Guidelines for designing switched-capacitor filters using Auto-SC are presented. The circuits designed by Auto-SC are in a format that is directly compatible with SWITCAP. A design example is ...

    Substrate current characteristics of conventional minimum overlap, DDD (double-diffused drain), and LDD (lightly doped drain) n-channel MOSFETs with various LDD n/sup -/ doses have been studied. Threshold voltage shift, transconductance degradation, and change of substrate current for these devices after stressing were also investigated. The minimum gate/drain overlap devices had the highest subst... View full abstract»

    Strategic opportunities are described for using computing and communication technologies to increase an organization's effectiveness. A model is presented for determining where an organization stands and what its options are for developing a competitive strategy through the use of these technologies. Specific cases of organizations that have taken advantage of strategic opportunities or have suffe... View full abstract»

    The MOSIS Service, a low-cost prototyping service for standard-cell and full-custom VLSI circuit development, is discussed. MOSIS (an acronym for MOS Implementation System) has developed a methodology that allows the merging of many different projects from various organizations onto one wafer. This cost-sharing gives designers opportunities that might be prohibitive at regular commercial prices. S... View full abstract»

    A procedure is presented to evaluate the S-parameters of a circuit using any generic or modified version of SPICE without making any modifications in SPICE internally. This method is qualified for a two-port network; however, the concept can be extended for an n-port network also. It is also generalized for analyzing any circuit with input, output, and ground terminals.<> View full abstract»

  • ADOPT-a CAD tool for analog circuit design

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):29 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (5)

    The structure and use of the ADOPT (Analog Design via Optimization) system are described. The ADOPT system consists of the circuit-simulation program SPICE, the nonlinear optimization program SUXES (Stanford University extractor of model parameters), and an interface subroutine called OPTLINK to link the two programs. The design of a third-order low-pass filter made up of seven transconductance el... View full abstract»
