Designing and Simulating Low-Voltage CMOS Circuits Using Four-Parameter Model

New technical paper titled "Bridging the Gap between Design and Simulation of Low-Voltage CMOS Circuits" from researchers at Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Abstract "This work proposes a truly compact MOSFET model that contains only four parameters to assist an integrated circuits (IC) designer in a design by hand. The four-parameter model (4PM) is based on the advanced com... » read more

Neuromorphic photonic circuit modeling in Verilog-A

Abstract "One of the significant challenges in neuromorphic photonic architectures is the lack of good tools to simulate large-scale photonic integrated circuits. It is crucial to perform simulations on a single platform to capture the circuit’s behavior in the presence of both optical and electrical components. Here, we adopted a Verilog-A based approach to model neuromorphic photonic cir... » read more

Analyzing Electro-Photonic Systems

The design and analysis of electro-optical systems is pushing tools into the complex multi-physics domain, making it challenging to create models that execute at reasonable cost — especially when they include thermal impacts. The lack of models and standards also is slowing the progression of the technology. Still the advantages are worth it to those willing to make the investment. Trad... » read more

Analog Meets Power In Standards Groups

While the topic of language [getkc id="13" comment="Standards"] might be cringe-worthy for some, there is some noteworthy work underway in this area—particularly where power and analog meet paths. There are four main standards here: Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS VHDL-AMS SystemC-AMS SystemVerilog-AMS SystemVerilog-AMS is the newcomer, and while the standard won't be available for ... » read more
