Advanced A/D and D/A Converters

Valid for: 2013/14

Decided by: Education Board A

Date of Decision: 2013-04-15

Elective for: D5, D5-dpd, E4, E4-dpd, MSOC1

Language of instruction: The course will be given in English

This course deals with the theory and design of advanced mixed-signal circuits, in particular AD/DA converters built around Delta-Sigma modulators. Both discrete-time and continuous-time Delta-Sigma modulators will be treated in depth.

Knowledge and understanding

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to describe the fundamental theory behind Delta-Sigma AD/DA converters
- be able to describe the main specifications in the design of Delta-Sigma AD/DA converters
- be able to describe the various implementations of Delta-Sigma modulators, with main advantages and disadvantages
- be able to describe the critical components and sub-blocks in Delta-Sigma modulators and their implementation in CMOS processes, as well as the limiting factor for modulators performance

Competences and skills

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to apply the knowledge acquired in the course to design a Delta-Sigma A/D or D/A converter suitable for a practical application
- together with a fellow student, be able to simulate and layout the Delta-Sigma converter

Judgement and approach

For a passing grade the student must

be able to orally communicate the results obtained from the laboratory work

be able to contribute sufficient fundamental concepts and knowledge so that a competent person in this area can document the idea, the problem and the solutions

Basic A/D- and D/A converters; basic Delta-Sigma A/D- and D/A converters; first-order and second-order Delta-Sigma modulators; higher-order Delta-Sigma modulators; continuous-time modulators; decimation filters; design of Delta-Sigma converters on silicon; test and measurements of A/D- and D/A converters; state-of-the-art in the design and performance of CMOS Delta-Sigma converters
