    ADC simulation/characterization

    is there a good simulation testbench for ADC simulation available? thanks!

    Nothing at the simulation level. However you can take Teradyne, Shlumberger, Agilent test subroutines and convert them into Verilog-A.

    You can actually design a macro model of an ideal DAC to compare the inputs and the outputs. In some environments like Cadence, you can write Verilog A models

    thanks for you guys' input. that's actually what i did. i'm just wondering if anyone has made a complete simu testbench/flow, preferrablly for cadence.
