Mixed-Signal Blockset

Design and simulate analog and mixed-signal systems

Mixed-Signal Blockset™ provides models of components and impairments, analysis tools, and test benches for designing and verifying mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs).

You can model PLLs, data converters, and other systems at different levels of abstraction and explore a range of IC architectures. You can customize models to include impairments such as noise, nonlinearity, and quantization effects, and refine the system description using a top-down methodology.

Using the test benches provided, you can verify system performance and improve modeling fidelity by fitting measurement characteristics or circuit-level simulation results. Rapid system-level simulation using variable-step Simulink® solvers lets you debug the implementation and identify design flaws before simulating the IC at the transistor level.

With Mixed-Signal Blockset you can simulate mixed-signal components together with complex DSP algorithms and control logic. As a result, both analog and digital design teams can work from the same executable specification.
