Comparator Synthesis Using Distributed Genetic Algorithm and HSPICE Optimization
In this paper, we propose an automatic design method that determines comparator topology and satisfies desired specification of the comparator by combining distributed genetic algorithm and HSPICE optimization function.In the comparator synthesis, new topology is created using known circuit topology information.After creating the topology, optimization of element values of the comparator is executed by distributed genetic algorithm and HSPICE optimization.As a target value example, specification of HA163S02 is used.Simulation results indicate that the proposed method can design the comparator despite the number of specifications and elements of circuit increase compared to the conventional methods.Furthermore, the performance of the automatic designed comparator is better than that of conventional comparators.
