Modeling Analog Devices using SV-RNM

The paper covers new technical thinking in modeling analog devices and most of them is already shared for the first time that they can be modelled. A new thinking towards using defined nets, boundary elements and interconnects. How actually these definitions can help in modeling analog devices such as DACs, ADCs, LDOs, Filters, and Image Sensor. There is a complete Analog Mixed DUT illustrated. This DUT consist of ADC/DAC with their modeled topologies (ANALOG) and ALU (DIGITAL). Also a lot of debugging techniques are illustrated since debugging and visualization of RNM constructs are important during the integration of a complete analog device and during connecting an analog-modeled device to a digital one.
