I am designing a Data acquisition system with a Texas instruments ADC, Inamps and a ST micro electronics micro controller. I am getting spice models for my inamps, differential amplifiers etc. so that I could do SPICE simulation.
I wish to see the output of my ADC if I am providing an input signal with my simulated amplifiers and filters. I am getting an IBIS model of the ADC. Is there any tool software so that, I can import these spice models and connect with this IBIS model similar to what we do in spice softwares and get an an output, so that I could do some FFT, transient analysis etc.?
I am new to these IBIS models. I am not sure what it is used for. When I read some introductory papers, I understood it is also a behavior model. Could we use it in the same way as SPICE transistor based models and get the same kind of results using Virtuso spectre or any other cadence product?
