This article presents a CMOS resizing methodology for analog circuits during a technology migration, with easy-to-apply scaling rules based on a simple MOS transistor model. The goals are to transpose a circuit topology from one technology to another while preserving the main figures of merit and to quickly calculate the new transistor dimensions.
