This paper describes the automated design and synthesis of switched-current (SI) filters using SCADS, a flexible CAD system integrated in a major VLSI design suite. With this system, the nonspecialist can produce high performance analog filters suitable for mixed signal CMOS IC's fabricated using only standard digital processes. To achieve high levels of performance on silicon, filter designs are realized using an enhanced differential circuit technique in its integrators and sample-and-hold cells. The design system is described in terms of the embedded circuits, its integrated tool set, the filter design flow and the engineering procedures for ensuring reliable circuit operation. Examples of high performance video frequency filters are presented, each generated automatically by SCADS within one day. Fabricated in a 0.8 µm standard CMOS process, they demonstrate state-of-the-art performance.

Abstract

This paper describes the automated design and synthesis of switched-current (SI) filters using SCADS, a flexible CAD system integrated in a major VLSI design suite. With this system, the nonspecialist can produce high performance analog filters suitable for mixed signal CMOS IC's fabricated using only standard digital processes. To achieve high levels of performance on silicon, filter designs are realized using an enhanced differential circuit technique in its integrators and sample-and-hold cells. The design system is described in terms of the embedded circuits, its integrated tool set, the filter design flow and the engineering procedures for ensuring reliable circuit operation. Examples of high performance video frequency filters are presented, each generated automatically by SCADS within one day. Fabricated in a 0.8 µm standard CMOS process, they demonstrate state-of-the-art performance.
