This paper provides a brief introduction to VHDL-AMS for system modeling and its many benefits for distributed design processes. When combined with a multi-language simulator, it provides the basis for effective communication and utilization of design information. The broad deployment of this modeling and simulation technology will greatly improve collaboration among automotive system designers in the 21st Century.
