The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS presents Verilog-AMS, the new analog and mixed-signal extensions to the widely used Verilog hardware description language. It starts by describing a rigorous and proven top-down design methodology. Top-down design is widely seen as the key to being able to design very large and complex mixed-signal circuits and it is enabled by Verilog-AMS. Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS are then introduced without assuming that the reader has a background in behavioral modeling. Finally, it includes a comprehensive reference guide for the language. The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS is extensively cross-referenced and indexed, making it an ideal reference for both Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS. A companion website, www.designers-guide.com, provides electronic copies of all the models used in this book, a library of user-contributed models, a discussion forum, additional documents on simulation and modeling, and other useful material. The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS is written for analog and mixed-signal designers, particularly those designing larger and more complex circuits.

The Verilog Hardware Description Language (Verilog-HDL) has long been the most popular language for describing complex digital hardware. It started life as a prop- etary language but was donated by Cadence Design Systems to the design community to serve as the basis of an open standard. That standard was formalized in 1995 by the IEEE in standard 1364-1995. About that same time a group named Analog Verilog International formed with the intent of proposing extensions to Verilog to support analog and mixed-signal simulation. The first fruits of the labor of that group became available in 1996 when the language definition of Verilog-A was released. Verilog-A was not intended to work directly with Verilog-HDL. Rather it was a language with Similar syntax and related semantics that was intended to model analog systems and be compatible with SPICE-class circuit simulation engines. The first implementation of Verilog-A soon followed: a version from Cadence that ran on their Spectre circuit simulator. As more implementations of Verilog-A became available, the group defining the a- log and mixed-signal extensions to Verilog continued their work, releasing the defi- tion of Verilog-AMS in 2000. Verilog-AMS combines both Verilog-HDL and Verilog-A, and adds additional mixed-signal constructs, providing a hardware description language suitable for analog, digital, and mixed-signal systems. Again, Cadence was first to release an implementation of this new language, in a product named AMS Designer that combines their Verilog and Spectre simulation engines.

This guide emphasizes jitter for time domain applications so that there is not a need to translate from frequency domain. This provides a more direct path to the results for designing in an application area where performance is specified in the time domain. The book includes classification of oscillator types and an exhaustive guide to existing research literature. It also includes classification of measurement techniques to help designers understand how the eventual performance of circuit design is verified.

System-level modeling of MEMS - microelectromechanical systems - comprises integrated approaches to simulate, understand, and optimize the performance of sensors, actuators, and microsystems, taking into account the intricacies of the interplay between mechanical and electrical properties, circuitry, packaging, and design considerations. Thereby, system-level modeling overcomes the limitations inherent to methods that focus only on one of these aspects and do not incorporate their mutual dependencies. The book addresses the two most important approaches of system-level modeling, namely physics-based modeling with lumped elements and mathematical modeling employing model order reduction methods, with an emphasis on combining single device models to entire systems. At a clearly understandable and sufficiently detailed level the readers are made familiar with the physical and mathematical underpinnings of MEMS modeling. This enables them to choose the adequate methods for the respective application needs. This work is an invaluable resource for all materials scientists, electrical engineers, scientists working in the semiconductor and/or sensor industry, physicists, and physical chemists.

Covering both the classical and emerging nanoelectronic technologies being used in mixed-signal design, this book addresses digital, analog, and memory components. Winner of the Association of American Publishers' 2016 PROSE Award in the Textbook/Physical Sciences & Mathematics category. Nanoelectronic Mixed-Signal System Design offers professionals and students a unified perspective on the science, engineering, and technology behind nanoelectronics system design. Written by the director of the NanoSystem Design Laboratory at the University of North Texas, this comprehensive guide provides a large-scale picture of the design and manufacturing aspects of nanoelectronic-based systems. It features dual coverage of mixed-signal circuit and system design, rather than just digital or analog-only. Key topics such as process variations, power dissipation, and security aspects of electronic system design are discussed. Top-down analysis of all stages--from design to manufacturing Coverage of current and developing nanoelectronic technologies--not just nano-CMOS Describes the basics of nanoelectronic technology and the structure of popular electronic systems Reveals the techniques required for design excellence and manufacturability

Discover how Verilog-A is particularly designed to describe behavior and connectivity of circuits and system components for analog SPICE-class simulators, or for continuous time (SPICE-based) kernels in Verilog-AMS simulators. With continuous updates since it’s release 30 years ago, this practical guide provides a comprehensive foundation and understanding to the modeling language in its most recent standard formulation. With the introduction of language extensions to support compact device modeling, the Verilog-A has become today de facto standard language in the electronics industry for coding compact models of active and passive semiconductor devices. You'll gain an in depth look at how analog circuit simulators work, solving system equations, modeling of components from other physical domains, and modeling the same physical circuits and systems at various levels of detail and at different levels of abstraction. All industry standard compact models released by Si2 Compact Model Coalition (CMC) as well as compact models of emerging nano-electronics devices released by New Era Electronic Devices and Systems (NEEDS) initiative are coded in Verilog-A. This book prepares you for the current trends in the neuromorphic computing, hardware customization for artificial intelligence applications as well as circuit design for internet of things (IOT) will only increase the need for analog simulation modeling and make Verilog-A even more important as a multi-domain component-oriented modeling language. Let A Practical Guide to Verilog-A be the initial step in learning the extended mixed-signal Verilog-AMS hardware description language. What You'll Learn Review the hardware description and modeling language Verilog-A in its most recent standard formulation. Code new compact models of active and passive semiconductor devices as well as new models for emerging circuit components from different physical disciplines. Extend the application of SPICE-like circuit simulators to non-electronics field (neuromorphic, thermal, mechanical, etc systems). Apply the initial steps towards the extended mixed-signal Verilog-AMS hardware description language. Who This Book Is For Electronic circuit designers and SPICE simulation model developers in academia and industry. Developers of electronic design automation (EDA) tools. Engineers, scientists and students of various disciplines using SPICE-like simulators for research and development.
