Applications

AMALIA - Analog/RF/Mixed signal Analyzer and Optimizer has been deployed on several Design Migration, Design Derivatives and IP development applications. AMALIA is topology and technology independent and leverages industry standard EDA simulators like Eldo, Spectre, APS and Ultrasim. As can be seen by examples below, our design automation application can address circuits of varied flavour.


Our unique value proposition is shorter schedules driven by front to back automation and high quality resources. Using this unique capability, we have migrated, tuned and developed derivatives over a varied range of applications and on varied technologies.
Some of the applications are listed below:

Customer Designs we have worked on

  • Wifi Chips - Design Migration, validation
  • Low Noise Amplifiers with focus on power reduction
  • PLLs - Migration and frequency derivative development. Focus on lower power
  • Bandgap Reference
  • Opamp
  • Voltage Regulator
  • Analog to Digital Converters
  • Linear Regulator - Creating multiple load current derivatives of the PMIC
  • Active Filter - focus on lower power amplifiers
  • Voltage Controlled Oscillator - resulting in derivatives with 20-25% lesser power than conventional approaches

Technologies worked on

  • TSMC 035um, 180nm, 65nm, 28nm
  • AMS 035um, 018um
  • UMC 130nm
  • Tower Jazz 180nm
  • GF 40nm, 28nm
  • SMIC 40nm

Customer Applications


European IP Design Company
OpAmp with ADC in TSMC 180nm

For this application, the focus was to generate two derivatives:

  • 1. A low current amplifier - shown in the fourth column
  • 2. A high GBW - shown in the fifth column
The requirements provided by the customer are in the second column and the specification values for their design are in the third column.


Opamp Results
























Two stage amplifier in cmos32lp

The focus here was to meet the requirements for GBW and Differential Phase Margin Freqency while also reducing current and component area.
