Linking system-level and circuit-level design tools can lead to faster time-to-market, earlier error detection, and reduced development costs. MathWorks engineers show how these benefits have been achieved and provide examples from industry of companies using cosimulation.

System-level design offers fast simulation, and circuit-level design offers slow, but detailed simulation. By combining both approaches via cosimulation, engineers are able to use fast system-level models to verify circuit-level models, and vice versa. Engineers have used system-level models to verify HDL code and SPICE models. Cosimulation improves mixed-signal design by allowing designers to design analog and digital components in the same model. This has resulted in much earlier error detection.

Viewers will see demonstrations of cosimulation and will learn how they can use cosimulation techniques themselves.
