Abstract: This paper introduces a simulation-based differential evolutionary optimization algorithm for the design of analog integrated circuits. This algorithm happens to be much faster than other derivative -based algorithms mentioned in literature. A 2.4GHz CMOS Gilbert Mixer has been selected in this case. In order to evaluate the time of convergence, the algorithm is compared with a GA optimization procedure using automated iterations of MATLAB-APLAC in a 0.18μ process. The differential evolutionary algorithm proves to be several times faster, even for smaller population sizes.
