READ MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE

About this course:

Modern communication requires traversing the digital and analog domain. Every transmitter and receiver has a data converter in the form of an analog to digital converter (ADC) and/or a digital to analog converter (DAC). This course starts with a look at digital and analog domain in communication, sampling theorem and discrete time analog signal processing. We then look at the architecture, design and operation of ADCs and DACs. We study different families of DACs such as segmented DACs, thermometer, binary weighted, R-2R, sigma-delta and more. For ADCs we study successive approximation ADCs, flash converters, pipelined, tracking ADCs and more.
