Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a contribution to create a VHDL-AMS radio-frequency component library. Currently, integrated circuit technology tends to integrate in a sole chip not only mixed signal but also mixed technology systems, going to a more general definition of the so called Systems On Chip. A library of RF models would be useful to model, in a same framework, circuits and systems of different physical domains, including RF, which will certainly optimise design process of such systems. Generally, VHDL-AMS, the analogue and mixed signal extension to IEEE standard VHDL does not include specific formulation for RF devices or systems modeling, as it does not support distributed parameters for simulation or description purposes. However, RF devices can be modeled by means of more general VHDL-AMS resources, like sentences including algebraic and trigonometric relations.
