Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a framework for derivative-free robust optimization based on the use of an efficient derivative-free optimization routine for mixed integer nonlinear problems. The proposed framework is employed to find a robust optimal design of a particular integrated circuit (namely a DC-DC converter commonly used in portable electronic devices). The proposed robust optimization approach outperforms the traditional statistical approach as it is shown in the numerical results.
