Virtuoso AMS Designer v11.1

Category: Analog Mixed Signal, Design Verification, Mixed-Signal Simulation

Course Description

In the Virtuoso® Analog Mixed-Signal (AMS) Designer course, you use the mixed-signal, mixed-language Virtuoso AMS Simulator. You use two different simulation models: the Virtuoso Analog Design Environment graphical-interface model and the command-line control-based model using the IRUN executable. You learn about the concept of discipline resolution and insertion of connect modules. You use the Hierarchy Editor to create design configurations. In addition to the Virtuoso Visualization and Analysis XL waveform viewer, you use the SimVision tool to debug simulations. You use the AMS simulator with the UltraSim solver. You are introduced to behavioral modeling using the Verilog®-AMS mixed-signal modeling language. You learn the Incisive® mixed-signal verification flow and Verilog testbench reuse with information on the SystemVerilog language, the SystemC language, the Common Power Format (CPF), the MATLAB language, and the Simulink coder.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Run Virtuoso Analog Mixed-Signal (AMS) Designer through typical simulations using command-line control and the Virtuoso Analog Design Environment
  • Switch between two analog solvers, the Virtuoso Spectre® Circuit Simulator and the Virtuoso UltraSim Full-chip Simulator, to optimize simulation speed and accuracy
  • Create configurations to allow easy replacement of behavioral models with more detailed schematic designs
  • Create simple models with the Verilog-AMS modeling language
  • Understand mixed-signal discipline resolution, apply signal disciplines and control connect module placement
  • Use the wreal data type for real-valued modeling
  • Reuse Verilog testbenches for mixed-signal designs
  • Understand verification flows using SystemVerilog and SystemC
