    Abstract

    Circuit designers need to characterize their designs based on different requirements of area, power, delay, and transition times. To do so, they may need to create a large number of circuits (defined as Spice netlists) in different configurations. The netlists not only contain the unit-under-test but also the mechanisms for providing the input stimuli and measuring variables (such as voltage, current, and time). The characterization is usually carried out by a team of engineers who may be located on the same site or in different geographical locations. A web-based collaborative platform proposed in this paper facilitates and expedites the characterization process by producing the required netlists in a consistent and error-free fashion.
