BDD-based symbolic analysis is a powerful technique, capable of solving much larger analog circuits by exact analysis (i.e., without applying approximation). However, the extension of solvability is still limited by the circuit size. In general, the complexity of BDD-based analysis (i.e., the BDD size as a function of the problem size) still grows exponentially, but the growth rate could be much lower than a non-BDD-based method [199].
