Analog design automation: Pipe dream or inevitability?


To begin, I’m not a profession analog design engineer. I’ve labored for years as an analog/RF design engineer, together with a stint in analog/mixed-signal IC design and format. I additionally studied management programs and machine studying (ML) fairly deeply for a number of years, and since then, I’ve saved marginally nicely updated with the information science. Lately, I do a superb little bit of consulting, RF contract design, and a number of engineering writing. Therefore, I’m every day studying and researching varied engineering, physics, and supplies science matters that pertain to electronics, principally RF and analog. What I’m not doing every day is bludgeoning transistors into submission, operating sims till my eyes bleed, or taking part in tetris in a format editor to wrangle parasitics which can be decided to make me appear to be a idiot.

For this reason I defer to our esteemed analog design engineer viewers on the nuances and vagaries of analog. Nevertheless, I do have ideas each on occasion. At present, I’m having ideas about a couple of completely different blogs and articles I’ve examine automating analog design. The blogs and articles I’ve learn are principally from digital design automation (EDA) software program corporations. In these written works, I discover a common theme that whoever is writing them appears to consider that analog design, not less than in a considerably important approach, could be automated. I discovered these claims puzzling for a couple of completely different causes.
