In this paper an overview of the application of symbolic analysis and computer algebra is given. After an introduction requirements to symbolic analysis tools are formulated, and a short abstract of a general symblic equation-based approximation algorithm is given. A generic symbolic analysis flow is introduced and applied to derive a nonlinear behavioral model of an integrated multiplier circuit using the symbolic analysis toolbox Analog Insydes [1]. It will be shown how symbolic analysis can assist behavioral model generation and can help to better understand a circuit in order to improve the quality of the design.
