High performance circuit simulation for analog and mixed digital-analog applications
01 / 2004 - 01 / 2008
The project is a cooperation between the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven and Philips Research. The goal is to increase the speed of transient simulations of electrical circuits. Because circuits consist of fast and slow subcircuits, an attractive method is to integrate these subcircuits by means of different stepsizes, which is also called "multirate". Clearly, the used partition and the coupling are very important for the result. Model reduction is another method, which will be studied. Then, it is tried to find much smaller equivalent models, such that the chip still is properly modelled.
