    A modeling methodology for behavioral models of smart-power IC is presented. These components typically consist of a few hundred to thousand transistors, which can be separated into digital (logic) and analog (electro-thermal) model equations. The preferred simulation tool in the automotive industry is presently SABER (MAST(R) language). The resulting models enable system level simulati... View full abstract»

    Designers face the challenge of specifying and implementing complicated mixed-technology systems. In order to better address mixed-signal designs, the VHDL-AMS and Verilog-AMS languages have been developed. These languages provide powerful capabilities to model and simulate behaviors in both the continuous and discrete time domains. Contemporaneously, the control systems community developed the ob...

    The use of behavioural modelling for operational amplifiers has been well known for many years and previous work has included modelling of specific fault conditions using a macro-model. In this paper, the models are implemented in a more abstract form using analogue hardware description languages (HDL), including MAST, taking advantage of the ability to control the behaviour of the model using hig...

    Modeling of complex electromechanical systems can be simplified by dividing the mechanical part of the system into basic physical effects. These basic physical effects have been used for microsystem modeling and - as shown in this paper - can also be used in modeling electromechanics of macro scale. The reuse of these models from a library of basic effects in other systems saves time and money. Th... View full abstract»

    The use of computer simulation at IC level has become prevalent in the design process. As the size of designs has increased rapidly, the same simulations have become progressively more difficult to perform, to the extent that the simulations have become less of a design tool and more of a bureaucratic step to be carried out. Behavioural modelling offers a practical route to achieving productive si... View full abstract»

    The paper presents an application of the VHDL-AMS formalism to the model of a n-MOS transistor named EKV. Our model takes into account several new features specific to deep submicron technology (parasitic resistors and overlap capacitors induced by LDD), and thermal-electronic interactions. We then give some examples of application of this innovative EKV MOS model (inverter, thermal-opto-electroni... View full abstract»

    Complex systems, such as telecommunication systems, control systems, etc., most often consist of both analog circuitry and digital circuitry. It is more efficient in simulation to represent such complex systems as mixed signal systems that both analog description and digital description are adopted. VHDL-AMS is an IEEE standard which is designed to describe multi-discipline, mixed-signal systems. ... View full abstract»

    A behavioral modeling procedure has been developed that enables the movement of poles and zeros to be modeled with changes in operating conditions. A major component of this procedure, known as the root localization algorithm, identifies when such an approach is applicable, resulting in models that more accurately reflect the distinctive behavior of the circuit View full abstract»
