What you can learn.

  • Develop an understanding of the fundamentals of data conversion systems
  • Analyse and design the basic building blocks of data converters including CMOS sampling circuits, operational amplifiers, comparators, and sample-and-hold architectures
  • Describe the basic principles of architectures of digital-to-analog converters, focusing on advantages, disadvantages, and performance tradeoffs of various topologies
  • Identify basic types of analog-to-digital converters focusing on design issues, sources of errors, and performance improvement techniques including offset cancellation, digital correction, and calibration
  • Acquire practical experience from a hands-on project to design, and characterize a simulated CMOS data converter circuit

About this course:

The course begins with an overview of data conversion systems followed by the analysis and design of basic building blocks of data converters: CMOS (complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) sampling circuits, operational amplifiers, comparators, and sample-and-hold architectures. With these fundamental concepts clarified, the course then continues with the basic principles of architectures of digital-to-analog converters, focusing on advantages, disadvantages, and performance tradeoffs of various topologies. Following that, instruction covers basic types of analog-to-digital converters focusing on design issues, sources of errors, and performance improvement techniques. These include offset cancellation, digital correction, and calibration techniques. The course concludes with a design project where participants apply their skills to design and characterize a simulated CMOS data converter circuit.
