2000-05-01 Long road ahead for analog synthesis
It may be a bit like asking why can't women be more like men, but the question, "Why can't analog be more like digital?" is the most common complaint among engineers attempting to use analog design tools. Synthesis (the automatic generation of physical circuitry from a high-level language description) is one area where analog design departs drastically from digital.

2000-03-01 Taking new stabs at programmable analog
Programmable logic has some traditional advantages over ASIC design. The gate count of FPGAs approaches that of custom circuits. FPGAs can be programmed?and re-programmed?out in the field, enabling fast time to market. ASICs, in comparison, need careful attention to layout and fabrication technology. It can take anywhere from six weeks to two years (depending on the complexity of the circuit) to get an ASIC working properly
2008-09-25 Synopsys ventures on analog/mixed-signal tools
