Anotace:
Nowadays, practically all the circuit simulators have the implemented algorithms for numerical solving differentialalgebraic equations constrained by the maximum order of used interpolation polynomials of six. In the paper, it is suggested that a usage of higher interpolation orders can improve the resulting efficiency of the algorithm considerably without endangering its numerical stability. Using the orders of interpolation polynomials up to ten is demonstrated on a sophisticated distributed microwave oscillator.

Anotace:
A posteriori multiobjective optimization relies on a series of mutually independent singleobjective optimization subproblems, which can be run in parallel, thus making full use of a multiprocessor (or multicore) computer. This paper presents a parallel process launching scheme, such that practically no computing capacity gets wasted. This is achieved using standard Windows API kernel objects for process synchronization of the semaphore and mutex types. The algorithm used was further modified to inherently generate the desired Pareto front in the convenient form of a contour plot.

Anotace:
In the paper, it is demonstrated that the optimal properties of lownoise amplifiers in radiofrequency design can be achieved by the multiobjective optimization, which enables a suitable tradeoff between the transducer power gain and noise figure in the form obtained on Pareto front. First, a modification of a classical multiobjective method is suggested that enables asymptotically uniform coverage of the Pareto front. Second, an application of the modified method is demonstrated in the design of the antenna lownoise amplifier for a satellitenavigation receiver. The efficiency of the algorithm is proved on its use for L and L&Sband lownoise amplifiers, where the resulting amplification and noisefigure correspond to expected optima.

Anotace:
In this paper, a special method based on the neural network is presented, which is conveniently used to precompute the steps of numerical integration. This method approximates the behaviour of the numerical integrator with respect to the local truncation error. In other words, it allows the precomputation of the individual steps in such a way that they do not need to be estimated by an algorithm but can be directly estimated by a neural network. Experimental tests were performed on a series of electrical circuits with different component parameters. The method was tested for two integration methods implemented in the simulation program SPICE (Trapez and Gear). For each type of circuit, a custom network was trained. Experimental simulations showed that for welldefined problems with a sufficiently trained network, {the method allows in most cases reducing} the total number of iteration steps performed by the algorithm during the simulation computation. Applications of this method, drawbacks, and possible further optimizations are also discussed.

Anotace:
The paper demonstrates a practical application of multiobjective optimization in radiofrequency design to achieve a suitable tradeoff between the noise figure and transducer power gain of lownoise amplifiers. A variation of the standard optimization method providing asymptotically uniform coverage of the Pareto front is presented. Its usefulness is demonstrated in the design of a dualband antenna lownoise preamplifier for satellite navigation. Obtained design goals have been verified by measurement. The precision of standard noise factor measurement method (Yfactor method with calibration stage) has been improved by partial correction of the dependence of transducer gain on output impedance of noise source.

Anotace:
Best properties of low noise amplifiers in RF design can only be achieved by the multiobjective optimization, which enables a compromise between the transducer power gain and noise figure in some shape of Pareto front. However, as the final circuit constructed in this way is not fully matched at the output, measuring the amplifier  unmatched neither to transducer power gain nor to noise figure  is quite complicated, especially in the case of the very low noise figures. Although we have recently suggested a measurement method for such circuits, it can be principally affected by the tolerances of the equipment. In this paper, we propose quite accurate estimation of these tolerances.

Anotace:
The poles and zeros of a circuit transfer function can be efficiently computed solving the generalized eigenvalue problem, which could be transformed into the standard eigenvalue problem to be solved by a suitably modified QR algorithm. In this way, the poles and zeros can be obtained for any linear circuit or a nonlinear circuit linearized at an operating point (using the Laplace transform), or for any digital filter (using the Z transform). Both the reduction of the generalized eigenvalue problem to the standard form and the iterative procedures of the QR algorithm are very sensitive to the numerical precision of all calculations. The numerical accuracy is especially critical for the two kinds of circuits: the microwave circuits characterized by huge differences among the magnitudes of the poles and zeros, and the large scale circuits, where the errors of poles and zeros are increased by the extreme number of arithmetic operations and frequent multiplicity of the poles and zeros as well. In this chapter, two illustrative examples of the reduction of the general eigenvalue problem (the first for analog and the second for digital circuit) and using the QR algorithm are shown first. After that, four circuits of various sizes are analyzed: simpler microwave low noise amplifier, larger power operational amplifier, more complex example with a 272 integrated operational amplifier, and the most difficult analysis of a distributed oscillator. A meticulous comparison of the obtained results shows that a usage of newly implemented 128bit arithmetics in GNU Fortran or C compilers with partial pivoting can assure both efficient and enough accurate procedures for computing the poles and zeros of the circuit transfer function.
An Algorithm to Solve Systems of Nonlinear DifferentialAlgebraic Equations With Extraordinary Efficiency Even at High Demanded Precisions

Anotace:
There are many situations when systems of nonlinear differential algebraic equations need to be solved with extraordinary precision. A steadystate analysis (determining the steadystate period of a system after a transient) is a typical case because a vector of unknown variables should be exactly the same after a numerical integration on the periodlong interval. Therefore, we need to develop such kinds of numerical algorithms that are computationally effective, even at very high requirements on the accuracy of the results. In the paper, an efficient and reliable algorithm for solving systems of algebraicdifferential nonlinear equations is characterized first. Unlike in other cases, the procedure is based on a sophisticated arrangement of the Newton interpolation polynomial (i.e., not the Lagrange one). This feature provides greater flexibility in rapidly changing interpolation step sizes and orders during numerical integration. At the end of the paper, two complicated examples are presented to demonstrate that the algorithm's computational requirement is quite low, even at very high demands on the accuracy of results.

Anotace:
The paper deals with an improved algorithm for estimating errors during approximate symbolic analysis. A linear system can be solved symbolically. However, the size of the resulting formula grows exponentially with the matrix size. The approximate symbolic analysis omits insignificant terms of the exact formula to decrease its size, which, on the other hand, limits the validity of the approximate result. The proposed algorithm estimates, in a computationally feasible way, the approximation error over a region of system parameters. This makes it possible to maintain the validity of the results even if the tolerances of the system parameters are defined. The method is based on the firstorder approximation of error functions. The algorithm is demonstrated using the SNAP symbolic analyzer, which has been developed by the authors.

Anotace:
In the paper, a theoretical background of the unexpected thirdorder intermodulation power decrease at some levels of input power is discussed first. This anomaly can be partially explained by various physical phenomena, RF stress, e.g., as shown in the stateoftheart review in the paper. Then a simulation of the IM3 dependency is performed, including a comparison between the computed and measured IP3 points. Finally the single and doubleband lownoise amplifiers designed by multiobjective optimization are measured from this point of view, and a frequency dependence of the IM3 anomalies is demonstrated. An improved optimization method is defined too.

Anotace:
GPU cards have been used for scientific calculations for many years. Despite their everincreasing performance, there are cases where they may still have problems. This article addresses possible performance and memory issues and their solutions that may occur during GPU calculations of iterative algorithms. Specifically, the article focuses on the optimization of transient simulation of extralarge highly nonlinear timedependent circuits in SPICElike electronic circuit simulator core enhanced with NVIDIA/CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) interface and iterative Krylov Subspace methods with emphasis on improved accuracy. The article presents procedures for solving problems that may occur during this integration and negatively affect either the simulation speed or the accuracy of the calculation. Finally, a comparison of the implementation of an iterative calculation procedure with the use of GPU cards, calculation by the direct method and calculation on the CPU only is presented.

The zeros and poles of a circuit transfer function are computed solving a general eigenvalue problem, which could be transformed to a standard eigenvalue task to be solved by a suitably modified QR algorithm. Both reduction of the general eigenvalue problem to the standard form and the iterative procedures of the QR algorithm are very sensitive to the numerical precision of all calculations. The numerical accuracy is especially critical for two kinds of circuits: the microwave ones characterized by huge differences among magnitudes of the zeros and poles, and the large scale circuits, where the errors of the zeros and poles are increased by an extreme number of arithmetic operations.

Anotace:
Chua’s table is presented as a tool for transforming circuits, compounded from nonlinear higherorder elements, into their dual mutations. The transformation is carried out via three assorted operations in Chua’s table, denoted as FLIP, SHIFT, and MOVE. It is shown that their combination can yield dual circuits with interesting parameters, and that the dual circuits can be used for efficient modeling or hardware emulation of the original circuits, for example the circuits containing memristors.

Anotace:
In the paper, we suggest several new updates to the equations that ordinarily describe the MESFETs and pHEMTs in both DC and time domains. We have composed some novel forms of the equations that are especially convenient for accurate describing transconductance voltage dependences, which is important for realistic modeling the low noise amplifiers with pHEMTs including calculations of their IP3 points. In other words, the attention is not only directed to the precision of the equation themselves, but also to the accuracy of the derivatives of them with respect to both gatesource and gatedrain voltages (up to the third order). The paper contains comprehensive comparisons of our recently updated models with our previous one and many others; two pHEMTs have been used for comparisons: the first working from 1 GHz up to 18 GHz, and the second operating at the frequencies greater than 100 GHz. Both DC characteristics and highfrequency sparameters have been compared, and the comparisons show that the precision of our model modifications is at least comparable with the model like TriQuint ones. (And they seem even better in modeling input reflection coefficient, e.g.)

Anotace:
An analysis of the Lprobe fed patch antenna with an extraordinary parasitic patch is described. The element of the antenna is fed by the Lprobe partially implemented in PCB. An excellent impedance matching is obtained (<26 dB in the design frequency band 4.45 GHz). The radiation characteristics are also very good (gain > 10 dBi). For the numerical analyses, the Full WaveCST Microwave Studio software was used in both frequency and time domains, and a very good agreement between the Time Domain Solver (TDS) and Frequency Domain Solver (FDS) was obtained. Real antenna samples have been created and measured as well as eightelement antenna arrays designed by the DolphChebyshev method.

Anotace:
This paper deals with the comprehensive behavioral model of pn junction diode containing reverse recovery effect, applicable to all standard SPICE simulators supporting VerilogA language. The model has been successfully used in several production designs, which require its full complexity, robustness and set of tuning parameters comparable with standard compact SPICE diode model. The model is like standard compact model scalable with area and temperature and can be used as a standalone diode or as a part of more complex device macromodel, e.g. LDMOS, JFET, bipolar transistor. The paper briefly presents the state of the art followed by the chapter describing the model development and achieved solutions. During precise model verification some of them were found nonrobust or poorly converging and replaced by more robust solutions, demonstrated in the paper. The measurement results of different technologies and different devices compared with a simulation using the new behavioral model are presented as the model validation. The comparison of model validation in time and frequency domains demonstrates that the implemented reverse recovery effect with correctly extracted parameters improves the model simulation results not only in switching from ON to OFF state, which is often published, but also its impedance/admittance frequency dependency in GHz range. Finally the model parameter extraction and the comparison with SPICE compact models containing reverse recovery effect is presented.

Anotace:
The semisymbolic analysis generally requires meticulous algorithms from the point of view of accuracy of resulting poles and zeros, especially in the case of huge differences among their absolute values. In the paper, an optimal pivoting strategy is suggested for the algorithm which reduces general eigenvalue problem to the standard one in the case of both full and sparsematrix procedures. Using the pivoting, the precision of the poles and zeros increases considerably. However, it is still insufficient for a number of tasks, especially for radio frequency circuits where the poles and zeros are spread over many decades of magnitudes. As contemporary compilers of C++ and Fortran languages have builtin quad precision libraries, it is possible to further enhance the semisymbolicanalysis accuracy using this 128bit arithmetics.

Anotace:
The paper deals with challenges in the modeling of high voltage JFET. As the most important, the effect of pinchoff voltage and related issues are discussed here. The pinchoff voltage in the traditional SPICE compact JFET model is only considered as a drop in the drainsource current, while other phenomena, such as capacitance sharp drop, or punchthrough between gate and substrate are completely ignored. The traditional compact JFET model does not even consider the gate as isolated from substrate. In this paper, an implementation of a dualgate JFET model is discussed with a special emphasis on pinchoff voltage and related effects.

Anotace:
The most efficient solvers use composite procedures that adaptively rearrange computation algorithms to maximize simulation performance. A similar concept can be integrated into a process of electronic circuit analysis, where the combination of different algorithms allows scalability of simulation performance. In this paper, we propose a new adaptive internal solver based on Biconjugate gradient stabilized method for the iterative solution of nonsymmetric linear systems supplemented with incomplete LU factorization as an efficient replacement for the direct solver implemented in program Spice for solving largescale circuits. We describe basic concepts of a simulation of electronic circuits with nonlinear time dependent devices and present implementation examples of the proposed methods. Optimal setting of the method and its application in program Spice is shown in comparison to other modern iterative solvers for nonsymmetric linear systems.

Anotace:
In this article, we propose several improvements that could be done to SPICE simulator. The first is based on a functional implementation of device models. The advantages of functional implementation are demonstrated on basic ShichmanHodges model of MOS transistor. It starts with a description of primary algorithms used in SPICE simulator for the solution of circuits with nonlinear devices and identify the problems that can occur during simulations. Main part of the article is devoted to improved factorization procedure for simulation of the nonlinear electronic circuits. The primary intention of the proposed method is to increase final precision of the result in a case of high condition linear systems. The procedure is based on a use of the iterative methods for solution of nonlinear and linear equations. Utilizing those methods for one iterative process helps to reduce memory consumption during simulation computation, and it can significantly improve simulation precision. The procedure allows to use enumeration with definable precision in a very efficient way.

Anotace:
The best properties of antenna low noise preamplifiers can be achieved by the multiobjective optimization which generates a tradeoff between the transducer power gain and noise figure in the form of Pareto front. However, as the resultant circuit designed in this way is not fully matched at the output, measuring the amplifier  unmatched neither to gain nor to noise figure  is quite difficult, especially in the case of very low noise figures. In this paper, a more accurate twostage measurement method is presented, where both calibration and measurement stages contain improvements to end the device with standard impedances and increase needed overall measurement sensitivity.

Anotace:
Nowadays, there exist relatively precise pHEMT models available for computeraided design, and they are frequently compared to each other. However, such comparisons are mostly based on absolute errors of draincurrent equations and their derivatives. In the paper, a novel method is suggested based on relative rootmeansquare errors of both drain current and its derivatives up to the third order. Moreover, the relative errors are subsequently relativized to the best model in each category to further clarify obtained accuracies of both drain current and its derivatives. Furthermore, one our older and two newly suggested models are also included in comparison with the traditionally precise Ahmed, TOM2 and Materka ones. The assessment is performed using measured characteristics of a pHEMT operating up to 110 GHz. Finally, a usability of the proposed models including the higherorder derivatives is illustrated using sparameters analysis and measurement at more operating points as well as computation and measurement of IP3 points of a lownoise amplifier of a multiconstellation satellite navigation receiver with ATF54143 pHEMT.

Fast and stable processing optimized for given simulation problem is essential for any modern simulator. It is characteristic for electronic circuit analysis that complexity of simulation is given by circuit size and used device models. Implementation of electronic device models in program SPICE uses traditional functional paradigm allowing fast computation but further modification of model can be questionable. In this article, we propose modification of standard procedure inserting functional computation layer into the process. It allows onthefly modification of standard models and own functional definition during circuit definition without a loss in computational performance. It also gives a possibility of functional chaining mechanism and improves mapping performance of circuit variables to device models.

This paper deals with the technique of bimodal statistical distribution modeling applicable to all standard SPICE simulators. Bimodal statistical distribution can have several reasons, however only some of them should be implemented to the SPICE models. The paper presents some examples of bimodal statistical distributions and the way, how to implement it to the SPICE model. The detailed model equations as well as the plots representing the simulated results are presented.

Anotace:
At present, there are relatively more precise pHEMT models available for computeraided design, and they are frequently compared to each other. However, such comparisons are mostly based on absolute errors of draincurrent equations and their derivatives. In the paper, a novel method is suggested based on relative rootmeansquare errors of both drain current and its derivatives up to the third order. Moreover, the relative errors are then relativized to the best model in each category to further clarify obtained accuracies of the drain current and its derivatives. Furthermore, one our older and two newly suggested models are also included in the comparison with the traditionally accurate Ahmed, TOM2 and Materka ones. The assessment is performed using measured characteristics of a 110 GHz pHEMT. Finally, a usability of the models of the higherorder derivatives is illustrated using an IP3 computation/measurement of a multiconstellation receiver for a satellite navigation with ATF54143.

Anotace:
At present, the foremost lownoise amplifiers are based on usage of the pseudomorphic highelectronmobility transistors (pHEMTs). However, in many cases, the amplifiers are often constructed at the limits of absolute stability or even in the region of potential instability because only such solutions give requested circuit properties as a tradeoff between the transducer power gain and noise figure. The stability properties are mostly checked by the classical criteria such as the Rollett conditions, mufactor etc. In the paper, a novel additional very efficient criterion is proposed, finding the most critical couple of poles and evaluating the ratio of imaginary and real part. The efficiency of the method is demonstrated on a lownoise antenna preamplifier for a multiconstellation satellitenavigation receiver based on an ATF54143 pHEMT.

This article presents an efficient procedure allowing to increase the final accuracy of the electronic circuits simulation. To obtain Transient Analysis of a nonlinear circuit the simulator needs to perform various algorithms, from an evaluation of initial DC state through a nonlinear iterative algorithm, to a numerical integration. These complex computations have to be implemented effectively with regards to memory and processor usage. Direct implementation of arbitrary precision types can directly lead to increased simulation accuracy but also significantly decrease simulation performance. As a compromise, we suggest using an additional algorithm based on Newton Iteration method for the solution of matrix inversion. The method was modified to be comparable to direct LUF solver.

The paper presents a method for emulating floating memcapacitors with piecewise linear constitutive relations between timedomain integrals of voltage and charge. The emulation is based on multiplestate floating capacitor, implemented via the switchedcapacitor technique. The states of internal switches are derived from the memcapacitor memory, which stores the history of the terminal voltage. The procedure is demonstrated on a twostate memcapacitor. Computer simulations are compared with measurements on the manufactured specimen.

Anotace:
Many analog technologies operate in large voltage range and therefore include at least one or more high voltage devices built from low doped layers. Such devices exhibit effects not covered by standard compact models, namely pinching (depletion) effects, in high voltage FETs often called quasisaturation. For example, the conventional compact JFET model is insufficient and oversimplified. Its scalability is controlled by the area factor, which only multiplies currents and capacitances but does not take into account existing 3D effects. Also the optional second independent gate is missing. Therefore, the customized four terminal (4T) model written in VerilogA (FitzPatrick and Miller, 2007; Sagdeo, 2007) was developed. It converges very well, its simulation speed is comparable with conventional compact models, and contains all required phenomena, including parasitic effects as, for example, impact ionization. This model has universal usage for many types of devices in various high voltage technologies such as standalone voltage dependent resistor, pinch resistor, drift area of power FET, part of special high side or startup devices, and dualgate JFET.

Anotace:
In this paper, a fundamentally new approach to computeraided design and simulation of electrical circuits based on a use of λcalculus for circuit device model representation and dynamic sizeable containers for sparse matrix simulation indexation indices is presented. This approach differs from traditional procedure where the entire simulation was performed over the matrix or matrix system assembled by modified nodal analysis (MNA). Turning device model definitions using λcalculus to functionals allowed to reduce an effort required for their specification and opened new possibilities for simulation evaluation. Considering MNA matrix as secondorder tensor system holding the functional definition of original sparse matrix entries allows to imagine these dependencies as chains with respect to a model definition and global dependencies between their defining inner functions. In this particular case, standard indexing methods would be a waste of memory during a computation, this problem occurs when huge sparse matrices enter the simulation. Therefore, new optimized indexing technique for nonzero matrix entries and variable size container types for those indexation vectors is proposed.

Anotace:
Although many programs have builtin various methods for finding the steady state nowadays, their actual implementations are often quite unsatisfactory regarding algorithm efficiency and reliability. We improved and checked procedures built on both epsilonalgorithm and sensitivity analysis in time domain. First of all, it was clearly demonstrated that increasing demands on the overall numerical accuracy do not lead to an excessive number of necessary integration steps and therefore LU factorizations correspondingly. This feature is especially significant for the suggested procedure based on the epsilonalgorithm. Furthermore, the practical experiments confirmed that a proposed arrangement of the extrapolation method is greatly insensitive to its order, which is even more important because a program user is unable to estimate the appropriate order for complicated circuits well. The properties of the methods are demonstrated using rectifier, Cclass amplifier, and LNA for which exceptional attention was given to checking the insensitivity of the extrapolation to its order.

Finally, the comparison of measured data vs. simulation is presented in order to confirm the model validity and a typical application is demonstrated.

This paper presents a lumped RF model of high voltage FET applicable for the frequency up to GHz range.

The signal delay caused by relatively large device area including the parasitic resonance modeled by distributed RLC network is considered. The model is applicable in commercial SPICE simulators, e.g. Eldo, Spectre or HSpice.

Anotace:
Although the major parts of function blocks for the satellite navigation receivers are fully integrated in a CMOS chip in most cases, it is convenient to create an antenna preamplifier as a separate circuit based on a lownoise pHEMT. Such an RF front end can be strongly optimized to attain a tradeoff between the noise figure and transducer power gain. Furthermore, as all the principal navigation systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and Compass) work in similar frequency band (roughly from 1.1 to 1.7 GHz), it is reasonable to create this lownoise preamplifier for all of them. In the paper, a sophisticated method of the amplifier design is suggested based on multiobjective optimization. First, an extraction of pHEMT model parameters was performed, including comparisons among several models. The extraction was carried out by our original threestep robust identification procedure based on a combination of metaheuristic and direct optimization methods. Second, a substantial improvement of a standard method for the multiobjective optimization is outlined. Third, the equations of passive elements of the circuit (including transmission lines and T splitters) were carefully defined using frequency dispersion of their parameters as Q, ESR, etc. Fourth, an optimal selection of the amplifier operating point and essential passive elements was performed using the previously improved goal attainment method. Finally, the sparameters and noise figure of the proposed preamplifier were measured, and the thirdorder intermodulation products were also checked.

Although practically all function blocks of the satellite navigation receivers are realized using the CMOS digital integrated circuits, it is appropriate to create a separate low noise antenna preamplifier based on a low noise pHEMT. Such an RF front end can be strongly optimized to attain a suitable tradeoff between the noise figure and transducer power gain. Further, as all the four principal navigation systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and COMPASS) work in similar frequency bands (roughly from 1.1 to 1.7 GHz), it is reasonable to create the low noise preamplifier for all of them. In the paper, a sophisticated method of the amplifier design is suggested based on multiobjective optimization. A substantial improvement of a standard optimization method is also outlined to satisfy a uniform coverage of Pareto front. Moreover, for enhancing efficiency of many times repeated solutions of large linear systems during the optimization, a new modification of the Markowitz criterion is suggested compatible with fast modes of the LU factorization. Extraordinary attention was also given to the accuracy of modeling. First, an extraction of pHEMT model parameters was performed including its noise part, and several models were compared. The extraction was carried out by an original identification procedure based on a combination of metaheuristic and direct methods. Second, the equations of the passive elements (including transmission lines and Tsplitters) were carefully defined using frequency dispersion of their parameters as Q, ESR, etc. Third, an optimal selection of the operating point and essential passive elements was performed using the improved optimization method.

Increasing significance of functional languages could be observed in programming and software development. Many new tools and development frameworks starting to provide in standard structural and object oriented environment also new functional style of programming or even turning all programming paradigm to functional style. Many simulation programs especially for computer simulation of electronics devices as SPICE simulator, were developed more than 30 years ago. It is clear that continue in development is very almost not possible and it is very difficult to fulfill customer requirements. This paper makes a brief introduction to basic of this problem and it proposes new principles for developing new modern simulator of electronics circuit and devices. Main part presents new ordering techniques for sparse matrices systems which are given by modified nodal analysis. The comparison of performance of standard matrix storages and novel sparse matrix ordering techniques is summarized at the end of this article. It is demonstrated on LU factorization and also on several types of solvers of nonlinear equations. Article includes definition of two basic devices in functional language: simple diode and voltage source.

Anotace:
As all the four main navigation systems (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, and Compass) work in similar frequency bands, it is reasonable to create a common input low noise amplifier for all of them. Although the whole chip including a lot of correlators and other digital circuits is quite complicated, a common low noise antenna preamplifier operating at the frequencies from 1.1 to 1.7 GHz could be quite simple and efficient. We have proposed finding a compromise between the amplifier’s amplification and noise figure under several natural constrains by multiobjective optimization. Moreover, we have utilized our enhancement of known optimization algorithm (the goal attainment method) to improve its efficiency, which led to finding a very good design tradeoff for the amplifier.

Anotace:
Although the sensitivity analysis is implemented in contemporary software tools for computeraided design, kinds of available sensitivities are limited. For example, Spice or MicroCap calculate DC or smallsignal AC sensitivities, and SpectreRF contains a periodic noise analysis or a parametric sensitivity analysis that can be efficiently used for determining the phase noise. In this paper, some novel types of the noise sensitivity analysis are described, which are not implemented in the usually applied circuit simulators. First, a procedure for determining the sensitivities of the noise figure was suggested. Second, an improvement of the algorithm for computing the noise figure was described, which incorporates circuit matching and eliminates necessary subtraction of the output noise generated by the load resistance at each frequency. Third, a new formula was derived for a computation of the sensitivities of the noise figure. The sensitivity analysis of the noise spectral density is demonstrated by means of an analytically solved example. The application of the sensitivity analysis of the noise figure for improving the noise properties of a microwave integrated circuit is described in a detailed way as well. Finally, using a sophisticated multiobjective optimization is suggested for a better selection of the operating point instead of classical circuit matching. This method was utilized for a practical design of an antenna preamplifier for a GPS/Galileo/GLONASS/Compass receiver.

Anotace:
Although many simulation tools contain advanced algorithms for the solution of the systems of differentialalgebraic nonlinear equations, some classes of circuits still cause serious problems. In the paper, a very flexible and reliable algorithm for solving the circuit differentialalgebraic equations is characterized first, which is based on a sophisticated arrangement of the Newton interpolation polynomial. After that, a reliable method is introduced for improving the convergence with four possible criteria. Unlike the similar algorithms focused on an operating point analysis only, the proposed method also works in a transient analysis. Moreover, for an ability of the procedure to model practically arbitrary electronic device, a subset of the Fortran 95 programming language was integrated to the circuit simulator with a power to differentiate functions symbolically.

Anotace:
The nonlinear models of MESFETs implemented in the contemporary CAD tools can well serve to perform various both time and frequencydomain simulations of microwave circuits with pHEMTs, and the sparameters measured at different bias points provide valuable information needed to extract the parameters of such nonlinear models. Regarding the model accuracy, a comprehensive comparison has been created for the Curtice, Statz, TOM, TOM2, Materka, Ahmed, and Dobes models. However, creating a reliable optimization procedure for the nonlinear model parameters' extraction from the sparameters is a complicated task. After a lot of tests, we have suggested a robust combination of a metaheuristics (Simulated Annealing selected) and a direct method (LevenbergMarquardt one selected). We have checked the algorithm on two practical examples. First, for a development of a lownoise amplifier intended as a common input unit for a GPS/Galileo/GLONASS/Compass receiver, an accurate nonlinear model of ATF54143 is necessary. Therefore, we have utilized a set of multibias sparameters, and we have extracted all the parameters for both our Dobes model (which is further used for a multiobjective optimization) and Statz one (which is necessary for standard simulators like MicroCap, e.g.). Second, we have extracted model parameters for a 110 GHz GaAs pHEMT with a gate length 0.25 um. The DC characteristics and sparameters for this pHEMT are shownfor the frequencies from 4 to 90 GHz.

Anotace:
In the paper, a set of improvements of the semiempirical MOSFET model is suggested to ensure required accuracy for simulating power electronic circuits. The enhancement of the precision was arranged by incorporating the more accurate GroveFrohman equations into the semiempirical model because the contemporary shortchanneloriented models BSIM and EKV are inappropriate for characterizing the power transistors. The ability of the modified model to characterize power devices was confirmed by successful processes of extracting its parameters for medium and highpower transistors, and a demonstration of this process for an SIPMOS power transistor is also shown in the paper. Finally, a multiobjective optimization of a Cclass radiofrequency power amplifier with LDMOSFET is demonstrated as well as an analogous procedure for a lownoise preamplifier. In the two examples in time and frequency domains, resulting three and twodimensional Pareto fronts are presented in convenient graphic forms for a comfortable selection of a tradeoff by a user.

This modeling method does not consider the impact of several parasitic bipolar devices. For the accurate modeling the impact of the following bipolar transistors has to be considered: a lateral bipolar transistor drain–bulk–source, a vertical bipolar transistor drain–bulksubstrate (only in isolated structures), and a vertical bipolar transistor source–bulksubstrate (only in isolated structures). For example, the drain or source leakage as a function of gate length cannot be modeled without the scalable parasitic bipolar devices. This contribution demonstrates the structure of a proposed macro model, implemented scalability (in most cases nonlinear), developed scaling equations, and physical explanation of this scaling. Finally, the comparison of measured data vs. simulation is presented in order to confirm the model validity. This model improvement solves not only leakage current scaling, but it also accounts for additional parasitic bipolar effects, such as current injection to the substrate.

The multiobjective optimization provides an extraordinary opportunity for the finest design of electronic circuits because it allows to mathematically balance contradictory requirements together with possible constraints. In this paper, an original and substantial improvement of an existing method for the multiobjective optimization known as GAM (Goal Attainment Method) is suggested. In our proposal, the GAM algorithm itself is combined with a procedure that automatically provides a set of parameters for which the method generates noninferior solutions uniformly spread over an appropriately selected part of the Pareto front. Moreover, the resulting set of obtained solutions is then presented in a suitable graphic form so that the solution representing the most satisfactory tradeoff can be easily chosen by the designer. Our system generates various types of plots that conveniently characterize results of up to fourdimensional problems. Technically, the procedures of the multiobjective optimization were created as a software addon to the CIA (Circuit Interactive Analyzer) program. This way enabled us to utilize many powerful features of this program, including the sensitivity analyses in time and frequency domains. As a result, the system is also able to perform the multiobjective optimization in the time domain and even highly nonlinear circuits can be significantly improved by our program. As a demonstration of this feature, a multiobjective optimization of a Cclass power amplifier in the time domain is thoroughly described in the paper. Further, a fourdimensional optimization of a video amplifier is demonstrated with an original graphic representation of the Pareto front. As an example of improving noise properties, a multiobjective optimization of a lownoise amplifier is performed, and the results in the frequency domain are shown. Finally, a necessity of a use of metaheuristic methods at least with a combination with the classical ones is demonstrated.

This paper presents an accurate DC and RF modeling of nonlinear spiral high resistance polysilicon divider. The spiral divider is a sensing part of the high voltage startup MOSFET transistor operating up to 700 V. The strong electric field in low doped drain drift area located under the low doped polysilicon spiral divider results in parasitic effects that have a significant influence on DC and RF device characteristics and makes divider ratio voltage and frequency dependent. This paper demonstrates the structure of a proposed macro model, implemented voltage and frequency dependency, and physical explanation of these phenomena. Finally, the comparison of measured data vs. simulation is presented in order to confirm the model validity.

At present, there are many novel electronic circuit elements for which their nonlinear models for CAD are necessary, especially for microwave ones. However, in the PSpicefamily programs, only a class of several classic types of the MESFET model is available for the microwave area. In the paper, a novel reliable way is suggested for modeling various electronic structures by exclusive neural networks, or by corrective neural networks working attached to a modified analytic model. The accuracy of the proposed modification of the analytic model is assessed by extracting the model parameters of GaAs MESFET, AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs pHEMT, and GaAs microwave varactors. First, a precise approximation of the pHEMT output characteristics is carried out by means of both exclusive and corrective artificial neural networks; and second, an approximation of the capacitance (CV) function of the SACM InGaAs/InP avalanche photodiode is performed by the exclusive neural network. Further, the PtTiO_(2x)Pt memristor characteristic with an extraordinary (but typical) hysteresis is approximated by a set of cooperative artificial neural networks, because a single network is unable to characterize this especial element. Last, a sequence of systematic experiments is performed, which shows that the optimal structure of the network can be found relatively easily, and it should not be too complicated.

This paper proposes an enhancement of a standard method for the multiobjective optimization known as GAM (Goal Attainment Method). In our modification, the GAM algorithm is combined with a procedure that automatically provides a set of parameters (weights, coordinates of the reference point) for which the method generates noninferior solutions uniformly spread over a suitably selected part of the Pareto front. The resulting set of the solutions is then presented in a convenient graphic form so that the solution representing the most satisfactory tradeoff can easily be chosen. The whole algorithm was implemented as a program and tested on various circuit design examples. A typical one was a fourdimensional multiobjective optimization of an RF video frontend. Therefore, this task is thoroughly described in the paper as a representative demonstration of the capability of the program, including a sophisticated quasi fourdimensional graphic for selecting the tradeoff. Moreover, a comparison of our modification with WSM (Weighted Sum Method) is also performed.

Nowadays, there are many emerging electronic structures for which their nonlinear models for CAD are necessary, especially for the ones from the area of nanoelectronics. However, for such structures, sufficiently accurate analytic models are mostly unavailable. This is partially caused by the fact that the physical principles of the element operation are sometimes not fully clear (especially for quantum devices), and also by bizarre characteristics of some elements (typically with irregularities and a hysteresis in parts of characteristics). In such cases, models based on artificial neural networks are necessary and useful for these elements. Majority of the elements can be characterized with a single artificial neural network. However, for certain kinds of elements, a cooperation of more artificial networks is necessary. This case is described in the paper, where the Pt  TiO_(2x)  Pt memristor characteristic with an extraordinary (but typical) hysteresis is approximated by a set of cooperative artificial neural networks, as a single network is unable to characterize this unconventional element. Moreover, a semiautomatic selection of an optimal structure of the networks (both numbers of hidden layers and the numbers of the elements in the layers) is suggested in the paper.

This is partially caused by the fact that the physical principles of the element operation are sometimes not fully clear (especially for quantum devices), and also by bizarre characteristics of some of the elements (typically with irregularities and a hysteresis in parts of characteristics, or by negative differential conductances that are typical for the microwave transistors). In such cases, models based on artificial neural networks are necessary and useful for these elements. Majority of the elements can be characterized with a single artificial neural network.

Second, an ability of the artificial neural networks for modeling the negative differential conductance is demonstrated by characterizing the 110GHz pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT).

Anotace:
The majority of contemporary design tools do not still contain steadystate algorithms, especially for the autonomous systems. This is mainly caused by insufficient accuracy of the algorithm for numerical integration, but also by unreliable steadystate algorithms themselves. Therefore, in the paper, a very stable and efficient procedure for the numerical integration of the nonlinear differentialalgebraic systems is defined first. Afterwards, two improved methods are defined for finding the steady state, which use this integration algorithm in their iteration loops. The first is based on the idea of extrapolation, and the second utilizes nonstandard timedomain sensitivity analysis. The two steadystate algorithms are compared by analyses of a rectifier and a Cclass amplifier, and the extrapolation algorithm is primarily selected as a more reliable alternative. Finally, the method based on the extrapolation naturally cooperating with the algorithm for solving the differentialalgebraic systems is thoroughly tested on various electronic circuits: Van der Pol and Colpitts oscillators, fragment of a large bipolar logical circuit, feedback and distributed microwave oscillators, and power amplifier. The results confirm that the extrapolation method is faster than a classical plain numerical integration, especially for larger circuits with complicated transients.

In the paper, an efficient and reliable algorithm for solving the circuit nonlinear algebraicdifferential equations based on a sophisticated arrangement of Newton interpolation polynomial is characterized first. After that, a novel method is introduced for improving the convergence with four suggested criteria that are being compared. For enhancing the efficiency of repeated solutions of linear systems necessary in the NewtonRaphson method, a novel modification of the Markowitz criterion is suggested, which is compatible with the fast modes of the LU factorization. The modified criterion consists in an estimation of probabilities of the fillin enlargement. The probabilities are determined for all columns of the system matrix before the LU factorization, where the column probability is calculated as the average value of the probabilities for all the column elements. Finally, the columns are reordered so that first and last should be those with the minimum and maximum probabilities.

The polezero analysis is generally known to be very sensitive to the numerical precision of the computer arithmetic. In the paper, various methods are suggested for solving that problem. First, an optimal pivoting strategy of the algorithm that reduces the general eigenvalue problem to the standard one is presented for both full and sparsematrix procedures. The algorithm increases the precision of the semisymbolic analysis. A new technique has also been incorporated recognizing multiple poles or zeros, which are often computed inaccurately by the standard algorithms. A novel type of this procedure called secondary root polishing is described in a detailed way. The accuracy is further increased using longer numerical data. First, the long double precision is utilized. Furthermore, a novel application of a suitable multipleprecision arithmetic library is suggested. Finally, using the longer numerical data to eliminate possible imprecision of the multiple eigenvalues is evaluated.

Anotace:
A robust implementation of the weighted sum strategy and goal attainment method is described, and a comparison of both methods is performed. While the weighted sum strategy is preferable if the problem is known to be convex, or if a smaller number of controlling parameters is advantageous, the goal attainment method provides a better control over accessed parts of the Pareto front, but only at the cost of higher demands on the designer as well as on the used computational power. The robustness is increased by means of a twostage modified singleobjective method. The use of both methods is demonstrated on a practical example of a video amplifier design involving a fourdimensional optimization. Obtained results are evaluated and discussed regarding average correlation and inferiority. Furthermore, an interpolative approach to generating graphical output suitable for multidimensional problems is suggested and used for the fourdimensional objective space of the optimized circuit.

In this paper, an unusual and efficient usage of functional programming language Common LISP as simulation program (CLASP) for electronic circuits is proposed. The principle of automatic selfmodifying program has enabled complete freedom in definition of methods for optimized solution of any problem and speeding up the entire process of simulation. A new approach to program structure in electronic circuit simulator CLASP is described. The definition of simple electronic devices as resistor, voltage source and diode is given all together with description of their memory management in program CLASP. Other circuit elements can be easily defined in the same way. Simulation methods for electronic circuits as linear and nonlinear direct current analysis (DC) are suggested. A comparison of performances of two different linear solvers (an original and the standard GNU GSL) for circuit equations is demonstrated by an algorithm for automatic generation of huge circuits.

Although many simulation tools contain advanced algorithms for the solution of the systems of differentialalgebraic nonlinear equations, some classes of circuits still cause serious problems. These are typically the circuits with strong negative feedbacks, flipflop circuits, the blocks that are characterized by macromodels with unusual elements, and large distributed amplifiers and oscillators. In the paper, a very efficient and reliable algorithm for solving the circuit differentialalgebraic equations is characterized first. After that, a novel method is introduced for improving the convergence with four suggested criteria that are being compared. Unlike the similar algorithms focused on an operating point analysis only, the proposed method also works in a transient analysis. All the four criteria are thoroughly tested. The results confirm extraordinary robustness of the proposed method, even circuits with a large memelement hysteresis can be solved.

The paper deals with an enhanced control mechanism for approximate symbolic analysis of the SimplificationBefore Generation class. A traditional approach consists in the evaluation of errors caused by simplification only for the nominal parameters of network components. The proposed procedure uses sensitivities to estimate the worstcase error due to component tolerances, i.e. the expression validity is checked over the tolerance interval of component parameters. A fast computational algorithm based on the ShermanMorrison formula is used. The numerical cost is approximately given by two matrix inversions per one controlfrequency point and one simplification step.

Anotace:
Many software tools of the PSpice class do not contain any steadystate algorithm, especially for autonomous circuits. In paper, two addons are described to the algorithm for implicit numerical integration which determine the steady state of both nonautonomous and autonomous circuits by an extrapolation method or sensitivity analysis. The extrapolation procedure is based on scalar epsilonalgorithm which is relatively easy for programing and efficient in terms of number of required iterations. Since the selected algorithm for the implicit numerical integration gives values of derivatives at any time, the determination of unknown periods of autonomous circuits can be performed by modified NewtonRaphson method. The second steadystate procedure efficiently utilizes the outcome of timedomain sensitivity analysis. The efficiency of procedures is demonstrated by the analyses of a feedback microwave oscillator, rectifier, and Cclass amplifier.

Anotace:
The paper is aimed at original method of controlling peaks of audio signal by dynamically allocated scale factor. The method is useful in the case of processing audio signal before a psychoacoustic lossy encoder  MPEG1 layer 2 (used in DAB), AAC, HEAAC v1 (used in DAB+), or HEAAC v2, for example. Such encoders are very sensitive to a clipping product generated by a conventional clipper. Suggested method eliminates most of unwanted spectral components on the clipper output. Therefore, it produces conditions for optimal function of the psychoacoustic lossy encoders. The paper contains both results of measurements and listening tests which clearly demonstrate the improvements.

Anotace:
This paper suggests an enhancement of an existing method for the multiobjective optimization known as GAM (goal attainment method). In our proposal, the GAM algorithm is combined with a mechanism that automatically provides a set of parameters (weights, coordinates of the reference point) for which the method generates noninferior solutions uniformly spread over a suitably selected part of the Pareto front. The resulting set of solutions is then presented in a suitable graphic form so that the solution representing the most satisfactory tradeoff can be easily chosen. The whole algorithm was implemented as a program and tested on several RF design examples (video, lownoise, and power amplifiers), whose optimization results are also presented. For a comparison, the first design example was also solved by another method known as WMM (weighted metrics method).

All versions of SPICE can perform various kinds of analysis such as operating point, sensitivity, and transient analyses, and many others. The algorithms used for computations are based on an iterative numerical solution of nonlinear differential equations. This paper gives a simple overview about these algorithms, their principles, function and disadvantages. It introduces a novel approach and implementation of implicit and explicit algorithms for solving the differential equations in circuit design with the aim to improve the reliability and efficiency of the solution. Furthermore, it presents a comparison between the standard SPICE algorithm and the new developed ones.

Anotace:
An optimal pivoting strategy of the algorithm that reduces the general eigenvalue problem to the standard one is suggested for both fulland sparsematrix procedures. The algorithm increases the accuracy of the semisymbolic analysis, especially for resonant and/or largescale electronic circuits. A novel technique is also incorporated recognizing multiple poles or zeros, which are often computed inaccurately by the standard algorithms. A new type of this procedure called secondary root polishing is described in the paper. The accuracy is further increased using longer numerical data. First, the "long double" precision (available in many C/C++ compilers) is utilized. Second, a novel application of a suitable multipleprecision arithmetic library is suggested. The algorithms were checked on various electronic circuits.

Anotace:
Contemporary models of MOSFET are very complicated, especially the BSIM and EKV ones. Therefore, an identification of many parameters of these models is quite a difficult task from both algorithmic and numeric points of view. Moreover, the complexity of the models makes an optimization of MOSbased functional blocks too difficult. This paper suggests several improvements of both monoobjective and multiobjective optimization methods to enhance the reliability of extraction of the model parameters and to find the most achievable properties of the MOSbased functional blocks.

Anotace:
In the paper, a method is suggested for modeling miscellaneous RF semiconductor devices by exclusive neural networks or by corrective neural networks working attached to a modified analytic model. An accuracy of the proposed modification of the analytic model is assessed by extracting model parameters of the AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs pHEMT. An accuracy of procedures with neural networks is generally assessed by extracting their parameters in static and dynamic domains. An approximation of the AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs pHEMT output characteristics is carried out by means of both exclusive and corrective artificial neural networks. A systematic sequence of analyses is also performed for examining an optimal structure of the artificial neural network from the point of view its structure and complexity. The tests have been performed on both five and fourlayer artificial neural networks that serve for modeling a Pchannel JFET and for the AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs pHEMT.

Anotace:
Nowadays, absolute majority of circuit simulation programs contains classic Branin model of lossless transmission lines. However, characterizing the four delays (t  TD) incorporated in the model still causes difficulties due to incompatibility with most algorithms for solving algebraicdifferential equations. In the paper, a mathematical substitution of the delay is suggested which smoothly cooperates with the circuit algorithms. Moreover, results of the simulation do not contain spurious oscillations that are practically irremovable when an LC model of the line is used. As the model is suitable for RF circuits, its properties are demonstrated by means of an analysis of a microwave oscillator.

Anotace:
Nowadays, the majority of circuit simulation programs contain advanced methods for suppressing divergence of algorithms for solving algebraicdifferential equations. However, some classes of circuits still cause problems  the circuits with strong feedback, flipflop circuits, the ones characterized by macro models with unusual elements, and large distributed oscillators. In the paper, a novel method is introduced for improving the convergence with four criteria that are being compared. Unlike similar algorithms focused on an operating point analysis, the method also works in a transient analysis. All the four criteria are thoroughly tested on eight problematic circuits  six of them often diverge in the operating point analysis, and two of them sometimes diverge during the transient analysis.

Various models including the modified ones are compared in terms of the rootmeansquare errors of multibias sparameters.

Anotace:
The most accurate way for computing the distortion coefficients is to find a steady state period of the signal, and then to determine spectrum by means of fast Fourier transform. In the paper, main features of a reliable and efficient algorithm for determining the steady state are described. However, even such accelerated method often needs a timeconsuming numerical integration over many periods of the faster signal. For this reason, an efficient method for a fast estimation of the main distortion coefficients is also presented which does not contain frequent imperfections in the algorithm implementations. The algorithm uses higherorder Volterra series in a simple multistep algorithm which is compatible with a typical structure of the frequency domain part of software tools. Both methods are compared by analyses of the main intermodulation products of a lowvoltage lowpower CMOS RF fourquadrant multiplier.

Anotace:
Many software tools of the PSpice class do not contain an implementation of the steadystate algorithm, especially for autonomous circuits. In the paper, an addon is described to the algorithm for implicit numerical integration which determines the steady state of both nonautonomous and autonomous circuits by an extrapolation method. The extrapolation procedure is based on scalar epsilonalgorithm which is relatively easy for programing and efficient in terms of number of required iterations. Since the selected algorithm for the implicit numerical integration gives values of derivatives at any time, the determination of unknown periods of autonomous circuits can be performed by modified NewtonRaphson method. The efficiency of the procedure is demonstrated by the steadystate analysis of a tunable distributed microwave oscillator with the results compared with measured data.

Anotace:
At present, most of simulation programs can characterize gate delays of microwave transistors. However, the delay is mostly approximated by means of a firstorder differential equation only. In the paper, a more accurate way is suggested which is based on an appropriate secondorder Bessel function. The delay model is implemented to a slightly but efficiently modified classic MESFET model. The proposed model does not create spurious oscillations that are typical for any LC approximations, and the simulation times are comparable with those obtained without the delay model. Properties of the implementation of the secondorder Bessel function are demonstrated by an analysis of a tunable distributed microwave oscillator.

Anotace:
Adapted models of vertical NPN transistor are still mostly used for modeling the lateral PNP transistors. It causes inaccurate modeling because the behavior of laterally arranged PN junctions is different than vertically arranged PN junction. This presentation deals with the comparison of the several possible models of a lateral PNP transistor with the MODELLA model developed by Philips company. Differences among models are identified in DC/AC modes. A special attention is paid to the saturation region and models capabilities to describe scattering parameters (S parameters).

Anotace:
The most precise procedure for determining the intermodulation products is to find a steadystate period of the signal first, and then to calculate its spectrum by means of the fast Fourier transform. However, this method needs timeconsuming numerical integration over many periods of the faster signal even for enhanced methods for finding the steady state. In the paper, an efficient method for fast estimation of the fundamental intermodulation products is presented. The method uses Volterra series in a simple multistep algorithm which is compatible with a typical structure of the frequencydomain part of circuit simulators. The method is demonstrated by an illustrative testing circuit first, which clearly shows possible incorrect interpretation of the Volterra series. Thereafter, practical usage of the algorithm is demonstrated by fast estimation of the main intermodulation products of a lowvoltage lowpower RF CMOS fourquadrant multiplier.

Anotace:
The contribution deals with some open problems from the area of Transient and AC analyses of large continuoustime and switched circuits with the focus on switched capacitor circuits and switched DCDC converters. The discussed weak points of SPICElike and SPICEcompatible simulation programs consist in the absence of finding effectively the steadystate, in an inefficient integration algorithm for the transient analysis of switching phenomena, and in the absence of a direct AC analysis of switched circuits. The paper also describes some new approaches, which could be helpful in overcoming the above limitations.

The resulting set of solutions is then presented in a graphic form to the designer so that the solution representing the most satisfactory tradeoff can be easily chosen. The whole algorithm was implemented as a program and tested on two RF design examples (an LNA and a power amplifier), whose optimization results are also presented in the paper.

The sensitivity analysis in the frequency domain is generally demonstrated by means of a distributed microwave amplifier first, and then using the sensitivity analysis of the noise figure for improving the noise properties of a monolithic microwave amplifier is described.

The optimization is an indispensable tool for extracting the parameters of any complicated models. Hence, advanced optimization techniques are also necessary for identifying the model parameters of semiconductor devices because their current models are very sophisticated (especially the BJT and MOSFET ones). The equations of such models contain typically one hundred parameters. Therefore, the measurement and particularly identification of the full set of the model parameters is very difficult. In the paper, an optimization method is presented which is applicable for the identifications of very complicated models using a relatively small number of iterations. The algorithm has been implemented into the original software tool C.I.A. (Circuit Interactive Analyzer) to its static and dynamic analysis modes. Therefore, the optimization is able to identify both directcurrent and capacitance models of semiconductor devices. The process is demonstrated with various transistors.

Anotace:
At present, most of simulation programs can characterize gate delays of microwave transistors. However, the delay is mostly approximated by means of firstorder differential equations. In the paper, a more accurate way is suggested which is based on an appropriate secondorder differential equation. Concerning the transmission line delay, majority of the simulation programs use both Branin (for lossless lines) and LCRG (for lossy lines) models. However, the first causes extreme simulation times, and the second causes wellknown spurious oscillations in the simulation results. In the paper, an unusual way for modeling the transmission line delay is defined, which is also based on the secondorder Bessel function. The proposed model does not create the spurious oscillations and the simulation times are comparable with those obtained with the classical models.

Two methods for determining the steadystate are compared from the point of view of their efficiencyand stability.

For the autonomous circuits, a reliable detection of unknown period is implemented using derivatives of circuit variables. As a demonstration of solving the autonomous circuits, the steadystate analysis of distributed and feedback oscillators are fulfilled with the results compared using measured data.

Anotace:
The majority of CAD tools have limited modes of the sensitivity analysis: PSPICE only contains a static mode and SPECTRE includes frequency domain and static modes. However, many RF systems use symmetrical structures for enhancing the properties of the circuits. For such systems, the static sensitivities are zero in principle and therefore the time domain sensitivity analysis must be used. In the paper, a new recurrent formula for the time domain sensitivity analysis is derived, which uses byproducts of an implicit integration algorithm. Moreover, for a very fast estimation of mixed products, an efficient procedure is described, which is also not implemented in PSPICE. Both methods are demonstrated by analyses of a fourquadrant RF multiplier.

Anotace:
The paper explains the basic ideas of how to model the dynamical properties of switched DCDC converters by means of the socalled generalized transfer functions (GTFs). Switched DCDC converters exhibit some properties of continuous and discretetime characters. These systems can be globally modeled by mixed sz description, utilizing both the Laplace and ztransform operators. Then the resulting linetooutput and controltooutput transfer functions and the corresponding frequency responses can model some system behavior more faithfully than the classical sdomain zeros/poles location, including special effects above Nyquist's frequency.

This primary study is intended to implement a noninvasive pulse wave (PW) measurement of a human arterial system. Measured phonocardiographic signals are used to estimate parameters of arterial segments, above all the arterial compliance. A model of selected parts of the arterial tree was proposed for this purpose. The model is based on electric analogy of the transmission line and the arterial system. The parameters are identified using optimization methods and sensitivity analysis in a time domain in Circuit interactive analyzer (C.I.A.) software.

Anotace:
A new robust algorithm suppressing possible divergence of the NewtonRaphson method for solving the nonlinear circuit equations is proposed in both static and dynamic domains. For enhancing the efficiency of repeated solutions of linear systems necessary in the NewtonRaphson method, a new modification of the Markowitz criterion is suggested which is compatible with the fast modes of the LU factorization. The modified criterion consists in an estimation of probabilities of the fillin enlargement. The probabilities are determined for all columns of the system matrix before the LU factorization, where the column probability is calculated as the average value of the probabilities for all the column elements. Finally, the columns are reordered so that first and last should be those with the minimum and maximum probabilities, respectively. As a verification of the proposed algorithm, a comprehensive set of numerical tests is described for circuits chosen from various parts of electronics.

The analysis and optimization of electronic circuits are some of the main applications for the art of computer programming. It is mainly caused by problematic convergence of a certain class of the circuits and by extreme differences among the values of the circuit parameters. In the paper, a very flexible algorithm for analyzing the electronic circuits is described with a novel reliable method for suppressing the divergence. Moreover, an efficient algorithm for optimizing the electronic circuits is also characterized with a new method for ensuring the numerical stability using a reliable normalization of the system matrix. The new features of the analysis and optimization algorithms are tested using practical tasks of electronics.

Optimization is undoubtedly playing an ever more important role in CAD of electronic circuits. As the complexity of practical designs grows, so does the number of objectives to be optimized simultaneously. Even though a large number of multiobjective optimization methods have been developed in other disciplines like Operations Research, they are still generally unknown to electrical engineers and creators of CAD tools. The present paper provides a brief introduction to multiobjective optimization as such, explains two of the most frequently used methods, and discusses their advantages as well as their drawbacks. Several application guidelines and recommendations based on the authors' experience are proposed. The use of both methods is demonstrated on a practical example of a video amplifier design followed by evaluation and discussion of the obtained results.

Anotace:
Standard tools for CAD have limited modes of the sensitivity analysis: PSPICE only contains a static mode and SPECTRE includes frequencydomain and static modes. However, many RF systems use symmetrical structures for enhancing the circuit properties. For such systems, the static sensitivities are zero on principle and hence the timedomain sensitivity analysis should be used. In the paper, a novel recurrent formula for the timedomain sensitivity analysis is derived which uses byproducts of an efficient implicit integration algorithm. As the selected integration algorithm is more flexible than the Gear's one that is ordinarily used, the sensitivity analysis is more efficient in comparison with the standard CAD tools. An implementation of the method is demonstrated using the analysis of a lowvoltage fourquadrant RF multiplier. Nonstandard temperature sensitivity analyses are also tested in the static and dynamic modes.

Two methods for determining the steadystate are compared from the point of view of their efficiencyand stability. The first one is based on idea of extrapolation and uses the εalgorithm as an effective tool; thesecond one is based on idea of sensitivities and uses the standard sensitivity analyses built in software packages.The comparison is done using a set of typical microwave circuits, especially the nonlinear Cclass amplifier. Forthe autonomous circuits, a reliable detection of unknown period is implemented using derivatives of circuitvariables. As a demonstration of solving the autonomous circuits, the steadystate analysis of tunable microwaveoscillator is fulfilled, and the results are compared with measured data.

In this primary study the sensitivity of the proposed PCG measuring method of pulse wave velocity estimation is verified. As a reference method the commercial measuring system of the pulse wave velocity SphygmoCor (SPH) was used. Both methods are noninvasive. Electronic stethoscopes were used as phonocardiographic signal transducers in the PCG method. The SPH method is intended to measure arterial pressure pulse from the human body surface. Four volunteers were examined in this study, divided in groups of healthy objects and objects with hypertensive disease.

Anotace:
A condition of human arterial system, a compliance of arterial segment especially, is estimated with application of an electricanalogy arterial model. To identify the nonlinear model  a transmission line  of arterial segments a timedomain identification is employed. The model consists of a capacitance which substitutes the arterial wall compliance, a resistance, and an inductance which substitutes an inertia of the arterial segment. Measured phonocardiographic signals (noninvasive measurement) are used as input and output data of the model in themodel identification.

In the recent PSpice programs, five types of the GaAs FET model have been implemented. However, some of them are too sophisticated and therefore difficult to measure and identify afterwards, especially the realistic model of Parker and Skellern. In the paper, simple enhancements of one of the classical models are proposed first. The resulting modification is usable for reliable modeling of both GaAs FETs and pHEMTs. Moreover, its adjusted capacitance function can effectively serve as a convenient representation of microwave varactors. The accuracy of these models can be strongly enhanced using the artificial neural networks  both using an exclusive neural network without an analytic model and cooperating a corrective neural network with the updated analytic model are discussed.

Tato práce je věnována jednomu z možných způsobů stanovení vzájemného časového zpoždění fonokardiografických (FKG) signálů. Z tohoto zpoždění je následně vypočtena rychlost šíření pulzní vlny (PWV) v lidském tepenném řečišti, resp. ve vybraném úseku tohoto řečiště. Měřicí metoda použitá pro snímání pulzních vln je zcela neinvazivní. Jako snímače jsou použity elektronické fonendoskopy založené na principu převodu změny tlaku na zvuk. Stanovení časového zpoždění je provedeno pomocí korelační analýzy naměřených FGK signálů, druhé mocniny naměřených FKG signálů a první derivace naměřených FKG signálů. Z těchto hodnot je pak vypočtena rychlost šíření pulzní vlny v daném tepenném úseku. Zpracování naměřených signálů bylo realizováno v prostředí MatlabŽ pomocí vytvořené aplikace. Soubor měřených objektů byl tvořen pěti mladými dobrovolníky.

Opakovaná řešení soustav lineárních rovnic jsou z výpočetního hlediska nejnáročnější částí analýz a optimalizací elektronických obvodů. V článku jsou nejprve shrnuty nejvýznamnější simulační algoritmy, které opakovaná řešení soustav lineárních rovnic obsahují. V další části je definován LU rozklad jako velmi účinný nástroj použitelný pro efektivní opakovaná řešení soustav lineárních rovnic. Přesnost LU rozkladu je zajištěna vhodným systémem výběru hlavních prvků. Velký význam má však uspořádání rozkladu, které výrazně ovlivňuje celkový počet prvků výsledných matic, což má velký vliv na efektivitu algoritmů. V článku je navržen nový způsob řazení sloupců při LU rozkladu, který celkový počet prvků výsledných matic při analýzách rozsáhlých obvodů výrazně snižuje. Účinnost kritéria řazení je v článku demonstrována monitorováním počtu nenulových prvků matic při analýzách osmi elektronických obvodů.
