Barcelona Design has developed a revolutionary specification-driven synthesis solution. Unlike other analog design methods, Barcelona's solution does not rely on time-consuming Spice-simulations to design analog circuits, but uses equation-based optimization technology instead. It provides an extremely fast, accurate and easy-to-use top-down design method for the creation and porting of analog and mixed-signal functions. Barcelona’s synthesizable analog IP solution is changing the way analog functions are created and used in modern integrated circuits. Customers go from high-level specification to fully customized, tapeout-ready GDSII in hours. In addition to its ability to accelerate the creation of a custom circuit, our technology creates circuits that are optimal and more reliable.
