Debug and Validation of High Performance Mixed Signal Designs
High performance mixed analog and digital systems continue to evolve with increasing performance and complexity. Designers need to quickly find and analyze a wide range of problems from signal integrity issues such as crosstalk or jitter to bus faults such as setup and hold violations or dropped packets. This application note explores time-saving techniques for design validation and debug in mixed signal environments. These techniques will be highlighted using examples in high speed serial, FPGA and Digital RF designs.
