This paper presents a MATLAB ® toolbox for the time-domain simulation and high-level sizing of pipeline analog-to-digital converters. SIMULINK ® C-coded S-functions are used to describe the behavioral models of all building blocks, including their main circuit errors. This approach significantly speeds up system-level simulations while keeping high accuracy − verified with HSPICE − and interoperability of different subcircuit models. Moreover, their combined use with an efficient optimizer
