Course Info:

Goal: Basic and intermediate level analysis and signal processing of receiver and transmitter architectures. The goal is to select the critical places and the most suitable method for Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Conversions, and to develop creative knowledge, theoretical and practical, on the needed mixed-mode blocks.

Contents:

1. Data conversion principles and their application in modern wireless communication.

2. Various sampler architectures of modern data conversion systems.

3. Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADC), Digital-to-Analog Converters (DAC) and their performance metrics.

4. Different building blocks of ADCs and DACs.

5. Circuit design and analysis with PSpice.

Requirements: Exam and completion of the exercises.

Recommended prerequisites:

  1. TLT-8106 Basic Communication Circuits, 4 cr (link to course page) or equivalent knowledge.
  2. TLT-8206 Communication Circuits and Modules I, 4 cr (link to course page) or equivalent knowledge.

Literature: Selected chapters from various books, for example B. Razavi, Principles of Data Conversion System Design (IEEE Press, 1995), ISBN: 0-7803-1093-4
