Course Goals:

While digital techniques become undoubtedly efficient, most of the electronic systems still have to deal with analog signals, e.g. the radio channel in a wireless system. High performance A/D and D/A converters are the key building blocks in such a system. It is also desirable to move the analog-digital interface towards the front-end in a software-defined radio. In designing A/D and D/A converters, there are big challenges in speed, dynamic range, area, and power consumption. Embedded A/D and D/A converters become increasingly important due to the trend of system-on-chip. This course is motivated to give the basic knowledge of A/D and D/A converters and also its state-of-the-art development.

Course Contents in brief:
