Abstract

System-on-chips (SoCs) with analog and mixed-signal (AMS) blocks are used everywhere in real-life applications, e.g., smart sensors, medical monitoring devices, automotive components, etc. Such applications typically require some sort of power management, sensor interface, signal conditioning, and processing. While modern deep sub-micron technologies benefit digital subsystems with low cost and high data rates, the performance of analog subsystems becomes more difficult to manage because of factors such as lower channel resistance, poorer matching, inferior linearity, and smaller operating voltage ranges. In the coming Internet of Things (IoT) era with more embedded analog functions, the design of the analog portion of a system becomes a bottleneck with respect to performance, time to market and costs.
