Practical concerns about system-on-a-chip design with respect to mixed-signal cores are discussed. It is difficult to design a mixed-signal IP core which works in silicon. Mixed signal design integrates two different kind of mind sets: digital and analog. In one world there is no concept of clock and other is totally dependent on clock signal. It’s like two people trying to communicate who do not know each other’s language. This become very important and complex to deal with this situation. This lecture discuss some finer points which every chip designer should be aware of at least if not expert about these.
