Portable wireless product makers are asked to design and build 30 to 50 new products per year-"products" being anything from simple software changes to major new device platforms. And they have to service various combinations of all of the different air-interface requirements in the world, from GSM and AMPS to CDMA and TDMA-with 3G and W-CDMA coming up quickly.
Circuit optimizer aims at efficiency

Even with the help of highly specialized tools that cover all of the facets of a design flow, the critical act of designing at the transistor level is still performed with a rough balance of designer experience-which has no substitute-trial and error, and analog simulators. Analog simulators are as good as the information provided to them, so the heuristic methodology used in the design process can be identified as the root of much of the time and frustration experienced in a design cycle.
Synthesis proves to be Holy Grail for analog EDA
News & Analysis

Analog synthesis-the ability to construct efficient analog circuits from top-level descriptions-has become the holy grail of analog tool development. But the researchers pushing the envelope in synthesis are not to be found in whizzy corporate labs. They are largely university people, toiling away on shoestring budgets and stubborn determination.
