EEEN40600 Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits

Academic Year 2021/2022

Analysis and design of mixed-signal circuits, i.e., those combining both analogue and digital design techniques, concentrating on analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue converters (ADC & DAC). Topics include Nyquist-rate and oversampled sigma-delta data converters as well as effects of nonlinearities and noise on their system performance.
Note: This is continuation of EEEN 40570 - Analogue Integrated Circuits
