Abstract: The complete application of a hierarchical top-down design methodology to analog sensor interface front-ends is presented: from system level specifications down to implementation in silicon, including high-level synthesis, analog block generation and layout generation.
A new approach for implementing accurate and fast power/area estimators for the different blocks in the architecture is described. These estimators provide the essential link between the high-level synthesis and the block generation in our hierarchical top-down methodology.
The methodology is illustrated by means of the design of a complex and realistic example. Measurements results are included.
