Abstract:

This project has advanced significantly the state of the art in analogmixed-signalradio frequency integrated circuit system design methodology and its supporting design automation technology. The new design methodology offers important improvements in system performance as well as in system design productivity. The novel analysis and simulation algorithms developed in this project have the potential to significantly impact performance of systems under Together, the methodology and design automation technology can help to reduce the non-recurring engineering costs and the cost-overruns that may arise in some USAF programs. The feasibility of both the methodology and the algorithms has been demonstrated. Efforts to integrate the technologies into existing design flows by major EDA vendors have, however, failed. Major EDA vendors seem to have little motivation to meet the unique requirements of the USAF. They also prefer not to enable a potentially disruptive technology that could rival their existing capabilities.
