Model PLLs, data converters, and other systems at different levels of abstraction, and explore a range of IC architectures using Mixed-Signal Blockset™. You can customize models to include impairments such as noise, nonlinearity, leakage, and quantization effects, and refine the system description using a top-down methodology.
Using the testbenches provided, you can verify system performance and improve modeling fidelity by fitting measurement characteristics or circuit-level simulation results. Rapid system-level simulation using variable-step Simulink® solvers lets you debug the implementation and identify design flaws before simulating the IC at the transistor level.
With Mixed-Signal Blockset you can simulate mixed-signal components together with complex DSP algorithms and control logic. As a result, both analog and digital design teams can work from the same executable specification.
With examples, you can rapidly start designing mixed-signal ICs at the system-level, and use the results in third-party IC design tools.
Mixed-Signal Blockset is a Simulink add-on that provides models of components with impairments, analysis tools, and test benches for designing and verifying mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs).
You can model phased-locked loops, data converters, and other systems at different levels of abstraction and explore a wide range of IC architectures.
For example, you can explore the differences between a fractional-N PLL based on architectures using either an accumulator or a
You can use data-sheet specifications in your models and follow a top-down design methodology.
And you can directly analyze the open and closed loop performance of your PLL using the pre-simulation analysis capability.
You can include impairments such as noise, nonlinearity, and quantization effects, and anticipate the impact of real-world analog imperfections on your system performance.
All architectures and building blocks in Mixed-Signal Blockset are open for learning best modeling practices and suitable for further customization.
For example, you can validate the phase noise performance of your PLL.
You can also use digital or analog
