This paper presents a composable system simulation framework for electrophoretic separation microchips, using an analog hardware description language integrating analytical dispersion models that describe not only the behavior of individual components, but also the interactions between them. Both DC and transient analysis are performed in the framework. The accuracy (relative error less than 10%) and tremendous speedup (100~10,000) of composable system simulations are verified by comparison to experiment and numerical studies.
