Implementation of examples using the Berkeley Analog Generator (BAG)

Research field:Integrated sensor systemsType of work:Hardware design of integrated circuits

In the design of mixed-signal ICs, the design of analog circuits is even today much less automated than the design of digital circuits. A very current topic in this area are so-called generators, which use a script-based approach to map a designer's strategy for creating a schematic or layout. After writing a generator for a specific circuit class, running it can recreate a customized circuit for specific purposes or technologies at the push of a button.

One example of a generator framework is the BAG (Berkeley Analog Generator), which will be evaluated in this student project.

If you are interested in analog circuitry on the one hand and enjoy programming on the other hand, this topic is very well suited to combine both subjects.

  • Literature research on the BAG
  • Initial operation in the design environment at IMMS
  • Implementation of generators for selected examples
  • Documentation of the procedure and results
Desirable experience
  • Basics knowledge in analog (CMOS) circuit design
  • Motivated and independent way of working
  • Programming skills (preferably in Python)
Period:By agreement
