Analog/mixed-signal (AMS) SoC designs are seeing a sharp increase in analog and RF content, spurred by the demand in the consumer electronics industry for more complex feature sets in products such as wireless equipment. As more functions are combined on a single SoC, AMS SoC designers face the challenge to verify these diverse design styles and functionality in their entirety while meeting aggressive time-to-market demands and fulfilling high manufacturing yield expectations. Traditional SoC design and verification approaches have to be reevaluated to successfully integrate state-of-the-art mixed-signal technology to achieve accurate and streamlined full-chip SoC design closure.
