Book Description

28 Jun 2004 1402080441 978-1402080449 2004
The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS presents Verilog-AMS, the new analog and mixed-signal extensions to the widely used Verilog hardware description language.
It starts by describing a rigorous and proven top-down design methodology. Top-down design is widely seen as the key to being able to design very large and complex mixed-signal circuits and it is enabled by Verilog-AMS. Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS are then introduced without assuming that the reader has a background in behavioral modeling. Finally, it includes a comprehensive reference guide for the language.
The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS is extensively cross-referenced and indexed, making it an ideal reference for both Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS. A companion website,, provides electronic copies of all the models used in this book, a library of user-contributed models, a discussion forum, additional documents on simulation and modeling, and other useful material.
The Designer's Guide to Verilog-AMS is written for analog and mixed-signal designers, particularly those designing larger and more complex circuits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pointer to more information 11 Dec 2004
By Kenneth S. Kundert - Published on
I am one of the authors of this book and I wanted to let you know that if you wished to find out more about it before your ordered it, you can go to its home page, which can be found at [...] It contains considerably more information about the book, including excerpts.

Amazon would not allow me to post this message to you without giving the book a star rating. So I did my best to provide an unbiased opinion ;-).

3.0 out of 5 stars An introduction to Verilog AMS 14 Aug 2006
By Mark Dickmann - Published on
I am new to verilog A and even newer to Verilog AMS. I thought the book was a reasonable introduction to the language, but I prefer a longer text with more content. The book is only of moderate length and expensive as seems to be typical of Kluwer texts. There are also some spots where clarity, at least to myself, was lacking. A user will need the Verilog AMS license from Cadence to use this language. Lacking such a license, I was never able to apply the mixed signal info from the text. For the pure Verilog A user who is doing only analog and not mixed signal sims, this book may not offer an advantage over Fitzpatrick's book even though it is newer. For the practicing engineer, this text is a far better way of getting introduced to Verilog AMS than Cadence's cryptic documentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to the language & excelent reference 22 Dec 2005
By August West - Published on
This book is currently the only up-to-date reference book for Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS (the book by Fitzpatrick is very incomplete and way out of date).

It introduces the language by using a series of relatively simple yet useful examples. In doing so it gets you up and running quickly and then builds your knowledge of the language. It takes you through Verilog-A in some depth, then presents enough Verilog-HDL (the digital subset) to give analog designers a workable understanding of Verilog, and then covers Verilog-AMS in depth.

The book has one chapter that acts as a complete reference for the manual for VerilogA/MS and and excellent index. I use the book as a reference as I write models and can always find what I am looking for very quickly.

In short, I recommend it whole-heartily. It is an essential book for anyone that uses Verilog-A or Verilog-AMS.

2.0 out of 5 stars Verilog AMS 18 Dec 2007
By R. E. Seymour - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I design ADCs. I bought this book because we the tool became available to me at work. My first impression was underwhelming. However, as a reference book I have found it useful, and one of my associates borrows it also.

This is about all that is available. It is useful.
5.0 out of 5 stars Execellent reference for Verilog-AMS and a practical text book 14 Aug 2013
By OMR - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The greatest benefit of this book is its practical attitude. It starts by taking typical components one by one, explain challanges, introduces the necessary verilog-AMS constructs and shows the full listing of its Verilog-AMS model. The last chapter is a great refernce of the language.

You just have to be aware that the chapter on top-down design it too short as a text book on that topic - the book just shows you how to model analog and mixed signal designs in Verilog-AMS - noting more and noting less.

I will recommend this book to anyone who want to quickly get up to speed in using Verilog-AMS. It can also serve as a reference to experienced Verilog-AMS users. And I am not aware of any other book that can do this better.
