    ABSTRACT: The goal of evaluation platforms is design time and verification costs reduction, as these are the main parameters affecting time to market and final success of a product. The following article describes a new approach to prototyping of complex mixed-signal systems, suitable especially as a platform for system developers. Both digital and analog subsystems can be emulated within one development kit. The digital part is based on the ARM ASIC-Integrator Kit, targeting rapid development of embedded applications. Patented Electrically Programmable Analog Array (EPAA) acts as the part morphing the functionality of the analog subsystem. EPAA with fully parametrizable architecture allows either for transistor-level design of various analog function blocks, or reuse of pre-designed macros. In-field parameter adjustment and topology configuration designates the EPAA to be used in sensor and actor technology, or signal conditioning. Dedicated configuration software has been developed, allowing for various modi of device configuration, depending on the designer's experience and used abstraction level.

    ABSTRACT: In general, automatic layout composition techniques based on pre-designed devices facilitate the production of small IC numbers by prefabricating their basic structures. They also enable a high degree of automatic layout synthesis. However for their correct electrical behavior it is essential, that potential problems caused by electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) are fully considered during the design phase. This paper presents a new concept for generating analog layout components by combining module generators, known from digital technology, with a flexible guidance scheme driven by the structural synthesis of the analog circuit. By utilizing both pre-defined functional blocks and flexible analog interconnection methods our approach takes EMC problems fully into consideration. The layout concept introduced here has successfully been applied to different sample circuits

    ABSTRACT: The authors present a new methodology for designing layout structures of analog building blocks which are used in application specific integrated circuits (ASIC). The layout technique of telescopic layout cells reduces the time necessary to realize a geometrical layout of several configurations of the same circuit topology. Some short examples show the utilization of a telescopic cell with respect to the design of CMOS operational amplifiers

    ABSTRACT: Es wird eine Entwurfssystematik zur automati-sierten Synthese analoger Komponenten vorgestellt, die eine Schnittstelle zum Gesamtsystem aufweist. Es werden die Vorteile und die Leistungsfähigkeit einer strukturierten Vorgehensweise dargestellt, die von den Eigenheiten der analogen Signalverarbeitung ausgeht. Dabei werden komplexe Signaloperationen und Schnittstellenfunktionen ebenso wie EMV-An-sätze betrachtet. An Hand einer Implementierung wird gezeigt, daß diese universelle Synthesemethode ein zugeschnittenes Layout-Konzept erfordert. Es wird ein einfacher Ansatz vorgestellt.
