The specification on power consumption of a digital system is extremely important due to the growing relevance of the market of portable devices and must be taken into account since the early phases of a complex System-on-Chip design. In this paper some guidelines are provided for the integration of the information on power consumption in the executable(More)
— A rigorous formulation of the parametric yield for very large scale integration (VLSI) designs including the mismatch effect is proposed. The theory has been carried out starting from a general statistical model relating random variations of device parameters to the stochastic behavior of process parameters. The model predicts a dependence of correlation,(More)

Abstract—In this paper a simulator for the statistical analysis of analog CMOS integrated circuits affected by technological tolerance effects, including device mismatch, is presented. The tool, able to perform dc, ac, and transient analyses, is based on a rigorous(More)
Bus performances are extremely important in a platform-based design. System Level analysis of bus performances gives important information for the analysis and choice between different architectures driven by functional, timing and power constraints of the System-on-Chip. This paper presents the effect of different arbitration algorithms and bus usage(More)
This paper presents a simulator for the statistical analysis of MOS integrated circuits a ected by mismatch e ect. The tool is based on a rigorous formulation of circuit equations including random current sources to take into account technological tolerances. The simulator requires a simulation time of several orders of magnitude lower than that required by(More)
This paper proposes a methodology for the extension of SystemC to mixed signal systems. An oscillator made up of an inverter chain has been used to test the accuracy and stability of the algorithm proposed. Finally a simulation of a complex mixed-signal fuzzy controller is used to show the speed up achievable with a high level description of the analog(More)
