By Dan FitzPatrick, Ira Miller

Analog Behavioral Modeling With The Verilog-A Language offers the IC fashion designer with an advent to the methodologies and makes use of of analog behavioral modeling with the Verilog-A language. In doing so, an outline of Verilog-A language constructs in addition to purposes utilizing the language are offered. furthermore, the publication is followed by means of the Verilog-A Explorer IDE (Integrated improvement Environment), a constrained strength Verilog-A more suitable SPICE simulator for extra studying and experimentation with the Verilog-A language. This publication assumes a uncomplicated point of figuring out of the use of SPICE-based analog simulation and the Verilog HDL language, even supposing any programming language history and a bit selection should still suffice.
From the Foreword:
`Verilog-A is a brand new layout language (HDL) for analog circuit and platforms layout. because the mid-eighties, Verilog HDL has been used commonly within the layout and verification of electronic structures. despite the fact that, there were no analogous high-level languages to be had for analog and mixed-signal circuits and structures.
Verilog-A offers a brand new measurement of layout and simulation power for analog digital platforms. formerly, analog simulation has been dependent upon the SPICE circuit simulator or a few by-product of it. electronic simulation is essentially played with a description language comparable to Verilog, that is renowned because it is straightforward to profit and use. Making Verilog extra useful is the truth that a number of instruments exist within the that supplement and expand Verilog's features ...
Behavioral Modeling With the Verilog-A Language offers an outstanding creation and beginning for college kids and working towards engineers with curiosity in realizing this new point of simulation know-how. This publication includes a number of examples that improve the textual content fabric and supply a worthwhile studying instrument for the reader. The textual content and the simulation application integrated can be utilized for person examine or in a lecture room setting ...'

The block statement is a means of grouping two or more statements together so that they act syntactically like a single statement. 2. Resistor module illustrating a block statement attached to the analog statement.

An important characteristic of conservative systems is that there are two values associated with every node or signal (and hence every port of a component of the system) - the potential (or across value) and the flow (or thru value). In electrical systems, the potential is also known as voltage and the flow is known as the current. ). The potential of the node is shared with all ports connected to the node in such a way that all ports see the same potential. The flow is shared such that flow from all terminals at a node must sum to zero.

The potential of electrical is bound to the nature definition of Voltage, which defines an access function of V. Hence, to access the potential across the branch, use: V(n1, n2) In other words, accessing the potential from a node or port to a node or port defines the implicit branch. Accessing the potential on a single node or port defines an implicit branch from the node or port to ground. So, V(n1) 1. A branch is formed implicitly by use within the behavioral definition. 32 Verilog-A HDL Probes, Sources, and Signal Assignment accesses the potential on the implicit branch from n1 to ground.
