Analog and Mixed Signal Verification

Jones, K. (2008). Analog and Mixed Signal Verification. Paper presented at the FMCAD 2008 Formal Methods in Computer Aided Design, 17 - 20 Nov 2008, Portland, OR, USA.


More and more electronic systems have components that are not purely digital. Verification of such systems is a much less developed discipline than the digital equivalents and the application of formal (mathematically complete) techniques is a nascent area. In this paper, we will discuss the nature of analog circuit design and describe the way verification is done in practice today. We will describe some “formal” approaches coming from the analog design community. We will describe some of the approaches to formal verification that have been presented in recent literature. Finally, we will mention some areas where there are opportunities for future work.
