Mixed signal integrated circuits have become common in recent years. In these designs, some circuits are digital functional blocks while others are analog modules. Data processors are one of the widely used modules in present day communication chips and also in DSP designs. Many times, these modules are given by external vendors as IPs. Control circuits are normally designed to control the interface of the digital and analog modules and to configure the internal settings of the chip. Also, the test cost is steadily increasing, since high end test systems are required due to the complexity of the chip and the higher data rates. It is a good idea to have some simple data processing circuits that can do the job of data processing and control the internal resources and operations of integrated circuit with firmware.
