2006 IEEE Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics

Summary: 2006 IEEE Conference on
Systems, Man, and Cybernetics
October 8-11, 2006, Taipei, Taiwan

Abstract-- We propose an interactive layout synthesis CAD
tool. It allows a human user to graphically manipulate and
simulate a layout, but also has the ability to apply two simple
evolutionary synthesis methods: a simple random walk function
and simulated annealing. These methods are capable of
optimizing very complex functions difficult for a human to tune
by hand. Additionally the tool incorporates the ability to reduce
the dimension of the search space via variable locking,
contributing to both focused search and faster convergence to a
desired performance. The CAD tool has been written with
flexibility in mind, allowing the application to a wide range of
layout synthesis problems. In this paper its effectiveness is
demonstrated on a MEMS Vibratory Rate Gyroscope example.
esign Synthesis is the process of finding or generating
the design that will supply a desired performance [1].
