Analog/Mixed-Signal Design and Simulation in a Tanner Flow
White Paper Overview
Mixed-signal designs are widely used for applications in segments including automotive, IoT, communications, industrial control, medical and radio frequency. Verification of these complex mixed-signal ICs is challenging due to the need to ensure they meet demanding specifications with correct connectivity, functionality, and adequate system performance across analog/digital interfaces on the chip.
To address these challenges, verification teams need to run an increasing number of mixed-signal simulations at the top level as well as at the sub-system level. Their mixed-signal simulation solutions need to be fast, accurate, easy to use, and seamlessly integrate into existing analog and digital verification flows.
This white paper displays how the Tanner flow simplifies the design and verification process of Analog/Mixed-Signal design. It also describes how the user can verify design functionality, connectivity, and performance at all levels of the design hierarchy and for all integrated circuit (IC) applications.
