Cadence Virtuoso AMS Designer Simulator

Cosimulation of mixed-signal systems with MATLAB and Simulink


  • Schematic-based design entry and editing
  • Circuit simulation control from Virtuoso Analog Design Environment and AMS design environment
  • Mixed analog and digital simulation, debugging, testing, and verification
  • Provides a library of Simulink blocks for cosimulation


Cadence® Virtuoso® AMS Designer is a cosimulation interface that integrates MATLAB and Simulink into the hardware design flow for application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) development. It provides a fast bidirectional link between MATLAB and Simulink and Cadence Virtuoso AMS Designer Simulator. It enables direct cosimulation and lets you efficiently verify and cosimulate Virtuoso AMS Designer models (Verilog-AMS, VHDL-AMS, Verilog, VHDL, SystemVerilog, SystemC, Virtuoso Spectre/Spice/HSpice) from within MATLAB and Simulink.

The interface between Virtuoso AMS Designer and MATLAB and Simulink narrows the gap between algorithm and system design and hardware implementation.
