Analog integrated circuit design is still characterized by a variety of manual tasks while the digital design procedure benefits from complete and automatic synthesis flows. Therefore, analog parts of mixed-signal circuits easily cause design failures and require the main effort regarding development time and cost. With our rethought generator approach - the IIP approach - we ease analog design reuse. We have implemented a large part of a 12-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter) as reconfigurable analog circuit generator (analog soft IP) usable across multiple technoloigies. As the result, we reduce analog design time and improve analog circuit design quality. Moreover, in contrast to manual analog design, with our approach we gain analog design reuse.
