With the modern trend in chip functionalities and chip size, considerable advancement
has been made in EDA (Electronic Design Automation). EDA algorithms have become
irreplaceable in the semiconductor industry. We use adjoint sensitivity analysis and transient
simulations to render runtimes affordable and responses accurate.
This dissertation presents various advantages of adjoint sensitivity analysis to improve
the design cycle, provide better testing, and make more efficient the diagnosis of analog
circuits. Our motivation for all our applications has been to greatly reduce the computational
resources required while still providing the required result for design diagnosis and test.
