This publication provides an in depth precis of analysis on computerized structure of device-level analog circuits that used to be undertaken within the overdue Eighties and early Nineteen Nineties at Carnegie Mellon collage. We specialize in the paintings in the back of the construction of the instruments referred to as KOAN and ANAGRAM II, which shape a part of the center of the CMU ACACIA analog CAD procedure. KOAN is a tool placer for customized analog cells; ANANGRAM II a close zone router for those analog cells. we attempt to give the motivations in the back of the structure of those instruments, together with precise dialogue of the sophisticated expertise and circuit issues that needs to be addressed in any profitable analog or mixed-signal format instrument. Our process in organizing the chapters of the publication has been to give our algo rithms as a sequence of responses to those very genuine and extremely tricky analog format difficulties. eventually, we current a variety of examples of effects generated by means of our algorithms. This learn used to be supported partially by means of the Semiconductor examine Corpora tion, through the nationwide technology beginning, via Harris Semiconductor, and by way of the overseas enterprise Machines company Resident learn application. eventually, only for the checklist: John Cohn used to be the dressmaker of the KOAN placer; David Garrod was once the dressmaker of the ANAGRAM II router (and its predeces sor, ANAGRAM I). This publication was once architected through all 4 authors, edited via John Cohn and Rob Rutenbar, and produced in complete shape through John Cohn.
