Abstract

This chapter is concerned with symbolic analysis techniques for fault diagnosis and automatic design of analog circuits. After a first paragraph describing a software tool for the symbolic analysis developed by the authors, it details testability and fault diagnosis of analog circuits and presents a symbolic approach to the design centering problem. In addition, it highlights modeling of power electronic circuits based on symbolic techniques.
