Verilog-AMS in Gnucap

Mixed-signal modelling and simulation with Verilog-AMS

Verilog-AMS is a standardised modelling language widely used in analog and mixed-signal design, but without an open reference implementation. The language supports high-level behavioural descriptions as well as structural descriptions of systems and components. This Project will make substantial progress towards a Gnucap based free/libre Verilog-AMS implementation. Gnucap is a modular mixed-signal circuit simulator, and has been released under a copyleft license with the intent to avoid patent issues. Gnucap provides partial support for structural Verilog and encompasses an analog modelling language that has influenced the Verilog standards. We will enhance data structures and algorithms in Gnucap, and improve Verilog support on the simulator level. We will implement a Verilog-AMS behavioural model generator targetting Gnucap with the intent to support simulators with similar architecture later on.
