Abstract

"A complete discuss ion of the optimization of a circuit, including modeling and programming difficulties encountered, is presented. A three transistor bandpass filter is used in order to study various methods of optimization. The adjoint method of calculating the network error gradient vector is compared to the perturbation method. The adjoint method proves to have decided advantages over the other method. A generalized computer program is presented to carry out the Fletcher-Powell optimization algorithm with specialized subroutines which include a network equation solver and both methods of finding the gradient vector. The program proved very effective in realizing a desired transfer function for the given circuit"--Abstract, page ii.
