Integrated Digital/Analog Converters (DAC) design problem is considered. Design automation methods based on parametric optimization, circuit simulation and expert systems is proposed. Automatic design system DAC Compiler is designed using proposed methods. There is a capability to integrate considered system to Cadence(R) Virtuoso Design Environment System.
