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)

Top-Down Mixed-Signal Design with MATLAB and Simulink
In this webinar we demonstrate how engineers can build a coherent design flow for mixed-signal design. We illustrate this through demonstrations and case studies from industry. The webinar shows how different design stages and different engineering d

ADC Design with MATLAB and Simulink
In this webinar we demonstrate how engineers are using MathWorks tools to design and verify ADCs and DACs. To efficiently design these devices, engineers need an environment that handles feedback naturally, that combines analog and digital design, an

PLL Design with MATLAB and Simulink
PLL simulations are often slow, lengthening project development time. To speed up PLL design, engineers are using MathWorks tools. These tools model feedback efficiently, allow analog and digital components to be simulated together, and have abstract

SERDES Design with MATLAB and Simulink
Linking system-level and circuit-level design tools can lead to faster time-to-market, earlier error detection, and reduced development costs. In this webinar, MathWorks engineers show how these benefits have been achieved and provide examples.
