This paper proposes a novel paradigm to generate a parameterized model of the response of linear circuits with the inclusion of worst case bounds. The methodology leverages the so-called Taylor models and represents parameter-dependent responses in terms of a multivariate Taylor polynomial, in conjunction with an interval remainder accounting for the approximation error. The Taylor model representation is propagated from input parameters to circuit responses through a suitable redefinition of the basic operations, such as addition, multiplication or matrix inversion, that are involved in the circuit solution. Specifically, the remainder is propagated in a conservative way based on the theory of interval analysis. While the polynomial part provides an accurate, analytical and parametric representation of the response as a function of the selected design parameters, the complementary information on the remainder error yields a conservative, yet tight, estimation of the worst case bounds. Specific and novel solutions are proposed to implement complex-valued matrix operations and to overcome well-known issues in the state-of-the-art Taylor model theory, like the determination of the upper and lower bound of the multivariate polynomial part. The proposed framework is applied to the frequency-domain analysis of linear circuits. An in-depth discussion of the fundamental theory is complemented by a selection of relevant examples aimed at illustrating the technique and demonstrating its feasibility and strength.
