Abstract

An increasing issue for analogue integrated circuit
designers is the demand to not only provide cutting edge
performance, but also to adjust to the demands of smaller
process nodes, with the increased variability and other design
demands as a result. While digital circuits have the basic
advantage of being able to cope with some level of degradation in
devices (as long as it does not fundamentally affect the logical
behavior of the circuit), in contrast, analogue and mixed signal
circuits are generally highly susceptible to those variations. This
paper will describe some techniques that can mitigate the
intrinsic variability of devices and therefore reduce the
subsequent impact on the circuit designs themselves.
