Case Study 1 illustrates the use of SystemVision with VHDL-AMS for the design and analysis of a mixed-signal data transmission system. In this system, analog command signals are digitized, serially encoded, and transmitted over a radio frequency (RF) link. The transmitted data is then detected, decoded, and converted back into analog signals at a remote location. In essence, this system constitutes a wireless communications link. Analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) signal conversions are emphasized to illustrate mixed-signal modeling with VHDL-AMS.
