Over the last decades, integrated circuits have evolved from chips with a single function to complex systems on a single silicon chip. Such modern systems-on-chip (SoCs) features digital signal processors, microcontrollers, analog and RF circuits to provide the necessary interfaces to the physical world made of sensor signals, audio/video interfaces, electronic signals or wireless communications. These analog/mixed-signal (AMS) systems require the co-integration, co-design and co-verification of analog and digital circuits on the same CMOS technology platform. In this course, we will study the implementation of mixed analog/digital circuits with the help of behavioral modeling, as an essential tool within the design flow of AMS systems.

This course concludes the ELEC formation in electronic circuits and systems.
