Modélisation multidisciplinaire VHDL-AMS de systèmes complexes : vers le Prototypage Virtuel

Abstract : The industrial devices are more and more miniaturized and integrated. They allow various technical fields (digital and analog electronics as well as optics, mechanics, thermals or sensors...) to share the same chip. The traditional V design cycle does not fulfil the industrial requirements any more and a lot of bolts remain to identify and solve to breakthrough this field. The disturbing phenomena take more and more importance as the size of the systems decreases. Their design must take this into account from the very beginning of the step.
The industrial evolution in this field implies the development of realistic and productive procedures to improve the design cycle. Virtual Prototyping offers an interesting solution making it possible to reduce times and costs of development by the formalization, capitalization and re-use of the models which can be directly simulated, like by the application of a rigorous methodology as for their design. Among the Hardware Description Languages available, VHDL-AMS seems to fit very good. Indeed, it makes it possible to model the multidisciplinary systems in a native way and offers possibilities of modelling at high levels of abstraction. Moreover, this language is spread more and more within industries, which generates a new public of users, not having knowledge of HDLs, for which the new generation of graphic simulators prove to be very useful.
This thesis first of all presents the work carried out within the framework of the RMNT on the modelling of an optoelectronic device at high flow, short range and with strong thermal and mechanical interactions of the THALES Company. This study then made it possible to bring out elements of methodology which could make the design of models and the simulation of complex devices more in phase with a market increasingly more demanding.
