Top-down design offers a much faster approach to mixed-signal design than traditional methods. This webinar shows how top-down can be realized in a design flow and how it can be integrated with existing design flows and tools. It demonstrates how top-down design accelerates the design process.
The webinar uses a number of examples and case studies to illustrate top-down design. The examples will include:
Rapid system analysis (PLL example)
Rapid system evaluation using different ADC architectures
Cosimulation (SPICE and HDL)
