Verilog-AMS & Multi-Level Simulation

September 16th, 2013 by Dmitry Melnik

It occurred to me that it has been a few months since we shared an update on HiPer Simulation A/MS. Following DAC 2013 and Daniel Payne’s posts at SemiWiki (post 1, post 2), we at Aldec and Tanner EDA have received many inquiries from the field, conducted a number of evaluations, and deployed our analog/mixed-signal (AMS) design flow with our first mutual customers. In this article, I’ll share more the mixed-signal simulation methodology and highlight some of Verilog-AMS use cases that we have seen in the field.

Digital & Analog HDLs

The Verilog and VHDL languages were designed to handle discrete signals, where the number of possible signal values is limited (e.g. 1, 0, X, Z). Whereas Verilog-A was designed to handle continuous-time (analog) signals, that can take any value from a continuous range at any point.

    how to run a verilog ams in tanner EDA in t-spice.I want a quick rply pls

    • Christina Toole says:

      Tanner’s front end design tools support Verilog-AMS through co-simulation with a supported digital simulator such as Aldec’s Riviera-Pro TE (other simulators are also supported). Co-simulations are typically run either through T-Spice or directly from Tanner’s schematic capture tool, S-Edit. The Tanner toolflow makes simulating mixed-signal designs easy by automatically dividing the design into analog and digital components and invoking both simulators without user intervention.

    now i get the Aldec’s Riviera-Pro TE how to get license for that. i have already tanner 16 license

    thank you. download that but i want a clear procedure to interface with tanner and how to get license for Riviera-PRO TE.
