Discover how Verilog-A is particularly designed to describe behavior and connectivity of circuits and system components for analog SPICE-class simulators, or for continuous time (SPICE-based) kernels in Verilog-AMS simulators. With continuous updates since it's release 30 years ago, this practical guide provides a comprehensive foundation and understanding to the modeling language in its most recent standard formulation.
With the introduction of language extensions to support compact device modeling, the Verilog-A has become today de facto standard language in the electronics industry for coding compact models of active and passive semiconductor devices. You'll gain an in depth look at how analog circuit simulators work, solving system equations, modeling of components from other physical domains, and modeling the same physical circuits and systems at various levels of detail and at different levels of abstraction.

All industry standard compact models released by Si2 Compact Model Coalition (CMC) as well as compact models of emerging nano-electronics devices released by New Era Electronic Devices and Systems (NEEDS) initiative are coded in Verilog-A. This book prepares you for the current trends in the neuromorphic computing, hardware customization for artificial intelligence applications as well as circuit design for internet of things (IOT) will only increase the need for analog simulation modeling and make Verilog-A even more important as a multi-domain component-oriented modeling language.
Let A Practical Guide to Verilog-A be the initial step in learning the extended mixed-signal Verilog-AMS hardware description language.
What You'll Learn

  • Review the hardware description and modeling language Verilog-A in its most recent standard formulation.
  • Code new compact models of active and passive semiconductor devices as well as new models for emerging circuit components from different physical disciplines.
  • Extend the application of SPICE-like circuit simulators to non-electronics field (neuromorphic, thermal, mechanical, etc systems).
  • Apply the initial steps towards the extended mixed-signal Verilog-AMS hardware description language.

Who This Book Is For
Electronic circuit designers and SPICE simulation model developers in academia and industry. Developers of electronic design automation (EDA) tools. Engineers, scientists and students of various disciplines using SPICE-like simulators for research and development.




所有由Si2 Compact Model Coalition(CMC)發布的行業標準緊湊模型以及由New Era Electronic Devices and Systems(NEEDS)計劃發布的新興納米電子器件的緊湊模型都是用Verilog-A編寫的。本書將使您為神經形態計算、人工智能應用的硬件定制以及物聯網(IOT)的電路設計等當前趨勢做好準備,這些趨勢只會增加對類比模擬建模的需求,使Verilog-A作為一種多域組件導向建模語言變得更加重要。



- 回顧最新標準制定的硬件描述和建模語言Verilog-A。
- 編寫新的主動和被動半導體器件緊湊模型,以及來自不同物理學科的新型電路元件模型。
- 將類似SPICE的電路模擬器應用於非電子領域(神經形態、熱、機械等系統)。
- 開始應用擴展的混合信號Verilog-AMS硬件描述語言。



Dr. Slobodan Mijalkovic is a Senior R&D Engineer at Silvaco, Inc., specialized in semiconductor device and integrated circuit modeling for electronic design automation (EDA) software tools. Before joining Silvaco Europe, he was a Principal Researcher in HiTeC Laboratory at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, where he led a team for standardization of the Mextram bipolar transistor model with Compact Model Coalition (CMC). Formerly, he was an Assistant and an Associate Professor with the Department of Microelectronics at Faculty of Electronics Engineering, University of Nis in Serbia (Yugoslavia).
Dr. Mijalkovic has authored 50 cited publications including the monograph "Multigrid Methods for Process Simulation" published by Springer. In the period 2002-2006 he has set and chaired four editions of "Compact Modeling for RF Application (CMRF)" workshops that strongly contributed to the acceptance of Verilog-A as a standard compact modeling language. He is a senior Member of IEEE and currently a member of the IEEE EDS Compact Modeling Committee.
