A CAD tool for architecture-level design and analysis of data converters covering a wide range of conversion specifications is described. Building block and functional models are included for performance verification and, for all synthesized data converter architectures, macromodels are generated with embedded statistical information concerning the nonlinearity characteristics. Such macromodels yield rather fast functional simulated results whose accuracy is similar with the accuracy of the results obtained through much slower and time consuming general purpose simulators
