It is a brilliant honor to supply a couple of phrases of advent for Dr. Georges Gielen's and Prof. Willy Sansen's ebook "Symbolic research for computerized layout of analog built-in circuits". The symbolic research process provided during this publication represents an important breakthrough within the zone of analog circuit layout. As verified during this ebook, symbolic research opens up new probabilities for the advance of computer-aided layout (CAD) instruments which could examine an analog circuit topology and immediately measurement the elements for a given set of necessities. Symbolic research even has the aptitude to enhance the educational of younger analog circuit designers and to lead more matured designers via second-order phenomena equivalent to distortion. This publication may also function an outstanding reference for researchers within the analog circuit layout quarter and creators of CAD instruments, because it offers a complete evaluation and comparability of varied methods for analog circuit layout automation and an intensive bibliography. the area is largely analog in nature, for this reason so much digital platforms contain either analog and electronic circuitry. because the variety of transistors that may be built-in on a unmarried built-in circuit (IC) substrate progressively raises over the years, an ever expanding variety of structures might be applied with one, or a number of, very advanced ICs due to their reduce creation costs.
