In a Generic Integration Technology many different functionalities can be supported by combining basic building blocks in different ways. Because the technology platform is well defined, and semi-fixed between releases, library based design methods are well suited for designing circuits in such a technology. Library based design reduces design time and allows for higher circuit complexities. In this paper we describe the progress being made on a library of passive components in the EU project PARADIGM. Furthermore, we discuss a method to achieve a significant speed-up in circuit level simulations.
