One of the hurdles in mixed signal built in self test is
automation. This paper presents a robust mixed signal design for test
and built in self test library based approach for BIST circuit creation,
insertion, verification and test pattern generation that fits into the
existing design flow

    ABSTRACT: In order to reduce the number of design iteration for complex mixed signal telecommunication IC's, verification through full chip simulation is a must. The objective is to verify connectivity and functionality for the whole chip including the interface between analog and digital blocks. Efficient top level simulation required the use of a mixed mode (Analog and Digital) simulator. In addition, in order to accomplish this task, behavioral models of all the system building blocks of the design were developed and used to replace the transistor level sub-circuit description. The design sub-blocks were modeled in HDLA

    ABSTRACT: Phase/frequency detectors deliver output in the form of three-state, digital logic. Charge pumps are utilized to convert the timed logic levels into analog quantities for controlling the locked oscillators. This paper analyzes typical charge-pump circuits, identifies salient features, and provides equations and graphs for the design engineer.
