Need for A standard subset of Verilog-A for Compact Modeling
MOS-AK 2009,at IHP in Frankfurt /Oder
G.Depeyrot, F.Poullet

Need for A standard subset of Verilog-A for Compact Modeling MOS-AK 2009, 2-3 April 2009 at IHP in Frankfurt /Oder Gilles DEPEYROT & Frédéric POULLET Without any doubt, Verilog-A is now a standard language for compact modeling. But, much like for synthesis, a standardization of a subset of Verilog-A, along with a definition of good …

Calibration in a MEMS based measurement system or how to make a sensor-ASIC loop of high resolution work
Smart system Integration, Barcelona, Spain, T. Gessner (Ed.) VDE Verlag, ISBN 9783800730810, P.546-549
L.M.Voßkaemper, C.Domingues, L.Engels

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) as inertial sensors, like accelerometers and gyroscopes, are finally becoming attractive for many industrial applications, and their potential range of use is about to explode in the coming years. The application trend towards high resolution, reliability, and miniaturization, pushes system integrators to combine both the inertial sensor and its application-specific integrated circuit …

Simulating Microsystems in the Context of an Automotive Drive Application
AMAA’06
G.Pelz, C.Decker, D.Metzner, D.Dammers, L.M.Voßkämper

Abstract The opportunities to integrate more and more functionality into a (micro)system-in-a-package (SiP) heavily call for advanced methodologies in modeling and simulation for complete systems. For a microelectronics company like Infineon Technologies, the top-level simulation of our products, i.e. the above microsystems, is not a nice-to-have feature – it is a must! Iterating on the …

Programmable Architectures of Mixed Signal Systems-on-Chip for Portable Consumer devices
Embedded systems conference Tel-Aviv

A new paradigm is evolving because a SoC is not a mere Microcontroller IC just fashionably renamed, but a Programmable Architecture with hierarchical design-in of Virtual Components of Silicon IP. All portable consumer SoC’s tend to become mixed signal for cost-effectively embedding Power Management Units or DC-DC converters as well as A/D and D/A converters. …

IDRT-aware SoC Integration Flow
IP/SOC 2005
A.Bonzo, L.Engels, F.Poullet

Abstract Systems-on-Chip integrators are facing the need to integrate the mixed signal virtual components, which best perform sensitive I/O functions. They must address hierarchically the interactions, instead of the traditional approach operating flatly on the lowest level, as this suffers from a double- whammy, as follows. A new integration process must make room for the …

IP packaging based on XML signatures
IP/SOC 2005
G.Saucier, L.Ghanmi, M.Hamdoun, D.Maurer

Abstract This paper presents “best practice” up to a “standard” for packaging and delivering IP versions/configurations based on “XML signatures”; A XML layer is created on top of the files defining virtual IP version/configurations When delivering an IP to a consumer he gets in addition to the files its “XML signature” providing him a comprehensive …
