Paper Abstract

Due to the ongoing growth of microsystems' complexity, there is an urgent need for automatic optimization. In order to include it seamlessly in the customary design process, the algorithms have to be fast and robust. Calculations of the quality function call for at least one FEM-, netlist based or behavioral simulation. Thus the optimization process is a very time consuming task. This paper presents a methodology for enhancing the convergence characteristics of heuristic search methodologies.
