Project Release Information
This release makes the "postp" tool better support Spectre, supports Spectre in the "alter" tool, support the IEC 60063 preferred number series for resistors, capacitors, and inductors (E3, E6, E12, E24, E48, E96, and E192), and cleans the code.
A multiprocessor optimization algorithm message truncation error related to the MPI_SCATTERV function was corrected. The load balancer implementation was corrected. The RF module better supports Spectre. Support for LTspice and Spectre was added in the "postp" tool. The code was cleaned up. Minor improvements were made.
Improvements were made in the RF module
functionality. Support was included for
logarithmic search space for the existing
variables. Code refinements and bugfixes were
This release adds a retouched load balancer,
emulation of local optimization using the parallel
DE optimizer, more patches to compile with
MinGW32, and some minor enhancements.
This release adds dynamic load balancing in the
evolution (DE) algorithm, more patches to compile
natively under win32
using MinGW32, and minor bugfixes.
The ASCO project aims to bring circuit optimization capabilities to existing SPICE simulators using a high-performance parallel differential evolution (DE) optimization algorithm. It supports Eldo, HSPICE,
