The new generation of system-on-chip (SoC) incorporates digital, analogue, radiofrequency (RF)/microwave and mixed-signal components. Therefore, novel design methodologies must be developed to direct the design of these mixed-technology systems, which will have to include accurate behavioral libraries of devices and processes. Thus, this paper describes a behavioral modeling approach which generates accurate empirical models for RF/microwave devices and that can be easily integrated into a VHDL-AMS simulator. This approach is applied to a microwave tunable phase shifter and it is illustrated by the development of a VHDL-AMS model library for RF/microwave applications. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
