Behavioural modelling of analogue faults in VHDL-AMS - A case study

Brown, AD and Zwolinski, M (2004) Behavioural modelling of analogue faults in VHDL-AMS - A case study At 2004 IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS, Canada. 23 - 26 May 2004. , V632-V635.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Analogue fault simulation is needed to evaluate the quality of tests, but is very computationally intensive. Behavioural simulation is more abstract and thus faster than fault simulation. Using a phase-locked loop as a case study, we show how behavioural fault models can be derived from transistor-level fault simulations and that faulty behaviour can be accurately modeled.
