From chip to system design using a co-verification environment
Embedded Control Europe Magazine
D.Maure, L.M.Voßkämper

The field of mechatronics encompasses all applications where electrical, electro-mechanical and pure mechanical elements are applied to build up a system with a required functionality. For rapid and reasonably priced development, it is an absolute necessity, along with the construction of prototypes, to simulate all involved components commonly in an efficient way. This is a …

Simulation mechatronischer Systeme im Schaltungssimulator – Demonstrator: Festplatte
ASIM Nachrichten
D.Dammers, G.Pelz, L.M.Voßkämper

Kurzfassung Eine Entwicklungskosten reduzierende Simulation kompletter mechatronischer Systeme gewinnt mehr und mehr an Bedeutung. Die Beschreibung des mechanischen Verhaltens zusammen mit dem elektrischen und elektronischen Verhalten in einem Simulat o r u mgeht fehleranfällige Simulatorkopplungen. Zur Modellierung von Systemen mit unterschiedlichen Domänen und analogen und digitalen Signalen eignet sich die Hardwarebeschreibungssprache VHDL-AMS hervorragend. Die Erstellung …

SUCCESS for embedded soft and hard coverification of SoC
Embedded Systems, Israël, Tel Aviv
A.Magiorani, P.Sauge

Abstract Covalidating hardware and software remains a complex task for SoC designers. Isolated Instruction Set Simulators (ISS) and hardware simulators are readily available from diverse suppliers, but none can offer a complete solution for simulating a whole SoC with its software application: i.e. simulation of the microprocessor together with interconnected peripherals: logic, analog, memories… which …

Motor Modeling Based on Physical Effect Models
IEEE International Workshop on Behavioral Modeling and Simulation (BMAS) Santa Rosa, California, USA
D.Dammers, P.Binet, G.Pelz, L.M.Voßkämper

Abstract Modeling of complex electromechanical systems can be simplified by dividing the mechanical part of the system into basic physical effects. These basic physical effects have been used for microsystem modeling and – as shown in this paper – can also be used in modeling electro-mechanics of macro scale. The reuse of these models from …

Virtual test with VHDL-AMS for a Generator of Analog and Mixed Signal Virtual component
Viuf (1999)
B.Babba, G.Barret, F.Poullet

Abstract With the increase in the complexity of systems with mixed-signal components, many systems designers recognize advantages and necessity of the mixed-signal simulation of these systems as a whole. Unfortunately, modeling and simulating such complex systems takes an enormous amount of time. The first problem identified is the speed of analog simulation. The second problem …

Technology Trends: Design automation – More work needed on mixed-signal VC front
Electronic Engineering Times
J.F.Pollet

System-on-a-chip (SOC) designs involving mixed-signal virtual components (VCs) require integration with thousands of logic gates without noise interference. Meeting the challenges of this type of design, Dolphin Integration and NEC Electronics (Europe) recently created a Codec VC for audio and telecommunications applications. The design successfully integrated A/D and D/A converters, programmable- gain functions and digital …

Design Automation for Microsystems
L.M.Voßkämper, A.Lüdecke, M.Leineweber, G.Pelz

Abstract The paper features a methodology for the cooperative generation of micro-mechanical layouts and derivation of the respective circuit simulator models which is especially suited for systems requiring continuous mechanics even on system level. For these applications the final development level is lifted from layout to circuit abstraction which supports designers and boosts mechatronics intellectual …
