In this paper, we desribe a new system, called BEST, that is used to develop a macromodel or behavioral model easily. It automatically calculates the component values of macromodel represented by equations to satisfy the given specification. Also, it gives the way to analyze both the behavioral model and transistor level circuit, and then compare the analysis results of them to check the correspondence under specific temperature and bias condition, and BEST optimizes the component values of macromodel. Other feature is to characterize MOSFET as switch model which consists of PWL-RC network. Finally, it is possible to generage multi-level netlist which consists of macro/switch/transistor level circuits, and user can determine the trade-off between simulation speed and accuracy. With the graphic user interface form of macromodel development system described above. BEST enable designers to make macromodel by themselves and to uas it. We applied BEST to develop the macromodel for the test circuit and got the 18.6 times simulation speed up with preserving the accuracy within 10% compared to the conventional transistor level circuit simulation. Also, applicability of optimization capability was verified.
