Fast And Accurate Variation-Aware Mixed-Signal Verification Of Time-Domain 2-Step ADC

How to speed up simulation without losing accuracy.


To meet today’s analog-to-digital converter (ADC) specifications and to produce a high-yield design, teams typically need to perform extensive brute force mixed-signal simulations to account for all potential design variation. However, at nanometer nodes, the number of process, voltage and temperature (PVT) corners and parametric variation grow exponentially making the simulation impractical and costly. Teams attempt to employ extrapolation methods to shorten verification times. Learn how Analog Value Ltd. instead used Solido Variation Designer to perform PVT corner and Monte Carlo Simulation all at once to reduce simulations by orders of magnitude, but with the accuracy of brute force simulations.
