Analogue Behavioural Modelling for Electronic Circuits

Jan Symons

Abstract


In order to manage the design complexity of large integrated circuits it is required to simulate the complete system with its analogue sub-blocks at different abstraction levels. This is only possible by using behavioural models to reduce the circuit size and simulation time.

In the bottom-up verification phase of the design, the challenge of modelling is to reduce the circuit complexity with minimal effort, keeping only the relevant behaviour of the sub-blocks. Of particular importance are the automated modelling techniques. Their application is discussed using examples to illustrate the requirements to these techniques from the viewpoint of the circuit designer.
