This paper shows how SystemVerilog Assertions (SVA) modules can be bound to analog IP blocks, shall they be at behavioral or transistor-level, enabling the assertions to become a true IP deliverable that can be reused at SoC level. It also highlights how DPIs can fix analog assertions specificities, such as getting rid of hierarchical paths, especially when probing currents. This paper also demonstrates how to flawlessly switch models between digital (wreal) and analog models without breaking the assertions. Finally, it demonstrates how one can generate an adaptive clock to continuously assert analog properties whose stability over time is critical, such as current or voltage references or supplies.
