The problem is of importance to cutting-edge industrial integrated circuit design, such as designing SRAM memory components (bitcells, sense amps) where each component has extremely low probability of failure. A naive approach is infeasible because it would require billions of Monte Carlo circuit simulations. This paper demonstrates a flow that efficiently generates samples at the tails using importance sampling, then builds genetic programming symbolic regression models in a space that captures the tails, the normal quantile space. These symbolic density models allow the circuit designers to analyse the tradeoff between high-sigma yields and circuit performance. The flow is validated on two modern industrial problems: a bitcell circuit on a 45nm TSMC process, and a sense amp circuit on a 28nm TSMC process.", notes = "part of \cite{Riolo:2010:GPTP}", }
