Adore is a module generator for switched-capacitor (SC) filters that can be adapted to a variety of process technologies. It can generate layouts for SC circuits comprising ratioed capacitors, double-throw switches, and operational amplifiers (op amps). Adore uses a fixed floorplan and employs several algorithms to generate compact layouts for SC filters with small amounts of interconnect parasitics.
Adore accepts any library information it requires from an Oct database format. The generated layouts are also stored in Oct. Two conversion programs, octtocif and ciftooct, allow easy conversion between Oct and CIF formats.
