EECS 511 New course in Analog-Digital Interfaces    Bookmark and Share
This new 4 credit course covers most of the well known analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion schemes. The theory of analog-digital conversion, as well as metrics and testing of analog-digital interfaces are also discussed Both Nyquist rate and oversampling converters are covered. Nyquist rate schemes include flash, folding, multi-step and pipeline. The main focus is on CMOS circuits but some bipolar schemes are also discussed. The emphasis is on designing circuits that can be built on state-of-the-art commercial integrated circuit processes. Related topics in mixed signal design are also covered. The course begins with a short review of mixed-signal design. Common building blocks, such as comparators and opamps are examined in detail. However, students are expected to have a good knowledge of analog design fundamentals (i.e. feedback, small signal analysis, stability etc.) and should also be familiar with spice or spectre, before taking this course. EECS 413 (or an equivalent) is a prerequisite. Design work is a significant part of this course. Students design and model complete converters. Design is done with the aid of Matlab, Composer and Spectre. Follow the link below for information on the projects from an earlier special topics offering of this material. The course includes homeworks, design assignments, a mid-term and a design project.   [More Info]
