SIMSIDES Block Libraries and Models
This appendix contains a compilation of all M building blocks and libraries included in SIMSIDES. A brief description of their purpose and functionality, as well as their main model parameters, is provided.
Table B.1 compiles all libraries included in SIMSIDES together with a brief description of their contents. These libraries are divided into two main categories: Ideal Libraries and Real Libraries. The former contains ideal building blocks, whereas the latter includes behavioral models that incorporate circuit-level nonidealities. The libraries containing integrators and resonators are subdivided into several specific sublibraries, which include in turn building-block models corresponding to different circuit-level implementations. For instance, SC integrators are subdivided into FE and LD integrators; CT integrators are subdivided into Gm-C, active-RC, etc.
