Freemium is the two words “free” and “premium” combined together, and many of us have enjoyed using freemium apps on our phones, tablets and desktop devices over the years. The concept is quite simple, you find an app that is useful, and download the free version, mostly to see if it operates as advertised,… Read More

Differential Pair Schematic

I viewed a recent webinar from Paul Clewes of Pulsic, and the topic was Balancing Analog Layout Parasitics in MOSFET Differential Pairs. This topic interests me, because back in 1982 I wrote my first IC layout automation tool at Intel that automatically created 15% of a GPU chip layout called the 82786, then joined Silicon Compilers… Read More

Animate Preview

Digital IC designers use a well-known methodology with pre-designed standard cells and other IP blocks playing a major re-use role, however in the analog IC design world there are more nuanced requirements which often dictate that a new analog block be highly customized. The downside is that customizing analog IC layout takes… Read More

Animate Preview Area Estimation

I’ve written before about Pulsic’s Animate Preview software, which is extremely helpful in completing placement in analog blocks so that they are ready for routing. Analog design automation has always been a tough proposition, but Animate Preview looks like a promising tool, with practical benefits. Obtaining DRC clean placement… Read More

Pulsic Webinar

Many years ago, digital and analog design flows diverged, with digital design benefiting from increasing levels of automation and more importantly separation between the front-end design process and the back-end design process. While digital design still requires linkages between the front and back end, they are well defined… Read More
