    This paper stresses the importance of applying circuit theory in circuit simulation. Circuit simulation is a combination of circuit theory and numerical analysis. Both the theoretical basis and the numerical algorithms should be robust and accurate to produce reliable and correct results. This communication focuses on the theoretical and practical aspects of circuit equation formulation in the sim... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a historical review of author's early works influenced by the Circuits and Systems Group at UC Berkeley of which Prof. Ernest S. Kuh was a core member. They range from modeling of nonlinear devices and systems, in particular memristors, design optimization of satellite-based private communication networks to CMOS VLSI design and layout.

    SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a widely used circuit simulation framework for integrated circuit designs. The basic skeleton of SPICE time domain simulation was derived from the versions developed in UC Berkeley during the 1970s. In this paper, we report most recent numerical integration methods to improve traditional SPICE time integration schemes, which are based ... View full abstract»

    EDA (Electronic Design Automation) industry is now a multibillion dollar business and numerous commercial and university tools exist to automatically solve various sub-problems of the IC (integrated circuit) design process. Many of the underlying ideas of the algorithms implemented in those programs originated in Professor Ernest Kuh's research group at UC Berkeley. The objective of this paper is ...

    "Moore Stress" calls for technology and architecture innovation, and System in Package (SiP) is critical to address the challenge. System in Package is a generalization of System on Chip. As such, SiP is a giant chip rather than a miniaturized Printed Circuit Board (PCB). SiP using Wafer Level Package (WLP) enables performance efficient and cost effective integration of DRAM and logic. SiP with In... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the physical design of quantum logic circuits. More precisely, it addresses the problem of minimizing the number of required qubit reorderings (achieved by inserting explicit SWAP gates) when mapping a quantum circuit into a linear nearest neighbor quantum archi-tecture. First, an interaction graph that captures the interaction distances among various qubits in the qua... View full abstract»
