    1. 1. EDA (Circuits) Overview Paul Hasler
    2. 2. Extent of Circuits (Analog/Digital) Hearing aids Cell Phones Digital Cameras Automotive MEMs devices / Circuits Biomedical Analog ~ 20% of IC market since 1970
    3. 3. “The Analog Renaissance is Here!” --- Brian Halla CEO National Semiconductor “Analog chips enable computers to interact with the physical world--to see, listen, touch. . .the next ten years will see a shift in emphasis toanalog technologies. . . In the coming years, look for analog--not digital-- chips to attract the new talent and investment. . .” --- Red Herring Magazine, February 2003 "DSP and high-performance analog are the engines . . . and were only at the beginning of where analog is going." --- Templeton, incoming CEO of TI, February 2004
    4. 4. Range of Analog Products (Just TI’s map)
    5. 5. Brief History of Integrated Circuits (1960) 4004: First µP (1970)
    6. 6. Silicon Scaling “Standard” digital CMOS

    9. 9. Analog--Digital Signal Processing Gene’s Law and CADSPReal A/D DSP Computer Genes Lawworld 100W DSP Power Converter Processor (digital) CADSP Power(analog) Specialized A/D 1W Power / MMACReal ASP DSP Computer 10mWworld A/D IC Processor (digital) Programmable(analog) Analog Power 0.1mW Savings >20 Year Leap CADSP = Cooperative Analog—Digital 1µW in Technology Signal Processing 10nW (P. Hasler and D. Anderson) 1980 1990 2000 2010 2020 2030 Year Sensor Signals Gene’s Law = power efficiency scaling for DSP µC ASP IC Power and Computation Efficiency Critical for Custom Analog ~ 10,000 more Mobile Applications efficient than Custom Digital DSP/µC •Standard CMOS process • Greater signal processing capability without scaling IC process
    10. 10. Programmable Analog CircuitsProgrammable Analog Structure: Core Innovation - Charge storage and control in signal path Physical Layout - Combine to build computational engines Cross-section - Any standard CMOS process SchematicImplementation: Analog Parameter Storage - CMOS offset correction, Yield enhancement Example Functions - Analog data storage Programmable Analog Functions - Amplifier gain, Filter parameters - Reconfigurable analog circuits Dynamic Analog Computation - Matrix multiplication, Linear transforms - Adaptive Analog Systems m mxn n
    11. 11. Field Programmable Analog Array (FPAA) • Configurable Analog Block (CAB) – Synthesizes analog functions – Fully programmable functions, not just selectable – More efficient than selectable – Base block for FPAAFPAA (36 CAB, 150k Elements)
