High level modeling of heterogeneous systems, analog/digital interfacing.

Abstract : The thesis objective is the modeling of heterogeneous systems. Such systems integrate different physical domains (mechanical, chemical, optical or magnetic) therefore integrate analog and mixed- signal (AMS) parts. The aim is to provide a methodology based on high-level modeling for assisting both the design and the verification of AMS systems. A study on different techniques for extracting behavioral models of analog devices at different abstraction levels and computational weights is presented. Three approaches are identified and regrouped in three techniques. These techniques have been validated through the virtual prototyping of different applications issued from different domains: a low noise amplifier (LNA), a surface acoustic wave-based (SAW) chemical sensor, a CMOS video sensor with models developed at different abstraction levels and their integration within an industrial platform. The flows developed are based on the AMS extensions of the SystemC (IEEE 1666) standard but the methodologies can be implemented using other Analog Hardware Description Languages (VHDL-AMS, Verilog-AMS) typically used for mixed-signal microelectronics design.
