Applying an effective simulation and analysis strategy requires a modeling language that provides flexibility and depth in describing the physical and behavioral attributes of the real-world components and systems they describe.
Modeling language standards MAST and VHDL-AMS provide for comprehensive simulation and portability to other design teams or companies in the development cycle. The ability to encrypt these models is crucial for protecting intellectual property.
The MAST Hardware Description Language (HDL) from Synopsys is the de facto industry standard. MAST is the most advanced modeling language available for analog, mixed-signal and mixed-technology applications. Today, MAST has revolutionized the analog simulation industry by providing a methodology in which models can be created, and maintained, by users as well as their IC suppliers, ASIC vendors or EDA tool providers.
The IEEE 1076.1 language, a hardware description language for the description and the simulation of analog, digital, and mixed-signal systems, is defined in this standard. The language, also informally known as VHDL-AMS, is built on IEEE Standard 1076-2008 (VHDL) and extends it with additions and changes to provide capabilities of writing and simulating analog and mixed-signal models.
