There is a need for analog-to-digital converters with high signal-to-noise ratio and large signal bandwidth to solve a number of radiolocation problems. Developing such ADC is a challenge in the analog core, digital core and verification. The design flow of the digital core must take into account the possibility of changing the analog core specification at any design stage, provide the ability to quickly obtain the synthesizable RTL code of the device and conduct its functional verification.

This article describes the developed software package that generates the synthesizable RTL code and the verification environment configurations for each stage of development of the analog core of the multi-stage sigma-delta ADC.
