Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

DAT091 Introduction to Electronic System Design OR SSY130 Applied Signal Processing

Aim

The course is intended to give insight into how data conversion subsystems (particularly A/D and D/A converters) are specified and implemented, and how they affect the performance of the system they are part of.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- Describe the common architecures of A/D and D/A converters, and their performance limitations.
- Identify the most important specification parameters for data converters, explain why they are important, and give examples of applications where each parameter may determine the choice of converter component/ architecture.
- Calculate cost limits (most importantly in terms of power
dissipation) of data converters based on design parameters.
- Estimate the influence of the converter imperfections on the system performance.
- Select converter components and architectures based on the requirements of the application.

Content

The course is intended to give insight into how data conversion subsystems (particularly A/D and D/A converters) are specified and implemented, and how they affect the performance of the system of which they are part. The course includes sections on communly used converter architectures; converteer specification; cost limits for given parameters; influence of imperfections on system perforamnce; component and architecture selection based on application requirements.

Organisation

The course comprises lectures, lab exercises, and a hand-in
project. Lectures introduce the textbook material and provide additional
material not covered by the textbook (such as recent advances in the
art). The lab exercises are largely based on software simulations of different
A/D and D/A converters. The course project requires the student to analyse
the requirements on the data conversion units in an application and to propose
how the requirements can be met, while minimizing given cost functions, such
as power dissipation.

Examination
