A Methodology for the specification, design and verification of Application Specific Standard -IC-products (ASSP) is presented. The application of a " simulatable specification " , written in the Hardware Description language VHDL-AMS, is the key feature of this method, which uses a modular approach with respect to specification, behavioural models and(More)
A Top Down Design Aproach using VHDL-AMS as HDL is outlined using a current control IC as an example. An essential part of it is the concept of block specifications as a starting point for the implementation process. Behaviour modelling concepts of parts of the architecture are shown, in order to illustrate the ease of using the language standard. In(More)
A modeling methodology for behavioral models of Smart Power ICs 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 ® language). The resulting(More)
The paper discusses the simulative circuit verification of a power bridge in the context of its application, i.e. an automotive headlight leveling system. It especially emphasizes a topic, which is often neglected in mixed-domain modeling: the identification of the related component properties, e.g. the armature friction or torque constant of an electric(More)
The star topology is sometimes used in automotive applications to overcome wiring constrains within a car. It has to be mentioned that star topology is neither covered by ISO11898 nor by SAE J2284 therefore it is recommended to prove the feasibility of a specific topology in each case by simulations or measurements on a system setup (NXP-Semiconductors(More)
