Nowadays, the microelectronics market is characterized by an increasing complexity and integration, in particular in the field of application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) not only for digital but also for mixed-signal designs. The lack of a well defined methodology for analog synthesis, similar to the digital field means a serious drawback for analog and mixed signal design development. In this sense, the arise of VHDL-AMS is a recent evolution which promises to link analog design automation tasks into a coherent framework, in a similar fashion that digital design. In this paper, a tool to perform automated synthesis of analog systems, described in VHDL-AMS, into analog programmable devices is presented. The tool is focused to synthesise filters, wave-shaping circuits, amplifiers and in general most circuits supported by programmable technology. It is demonstrated with a practical example of a analog system composed by two filters and two controllable gain stages.
