Analog circuits are the most important parts in many Integrated Circuit (IC) design. This paper reviews the basic concepts in analog design automation using evolutionary algorithm. Analog design problem is a multi objective problem; this can be solved by Evolutionary computation methods. Computation methods provide the set of feasible solutions for the optimal circuit design of analog integrated circuits. It is necessary to integrate both analog and digital in a single chip for real world communication. Due to system level integration we need analog design automation tool for IC design. This paper summarized recent start of art in analog optimization and also lists the survey of main people working in this field. Finally, we listed several open research problem to improve the analog design automation for analog IC using evolutionary computation.
Keywords: Analog Design Automation, Analog Integrated Circuits, Evolutionary Computation, Multi Objective
