This paper introduces PareDA (ParetoDesignAutomation), a composite automated methodology for the optimization of analog circuits and solar cell devices. The PareDA framework combines randomized algorithms, domain and constraints sensitivity analysis, epsilon-dominance and global robustness analysis in order to perform simulation-based, multi-scenario and multi-objective optimization. PareDA is evaluated on the problems of designing a three-stage operational amplifier, a yield-aware optimization of a folded- ...
