Analog Digital Converter Design: Part 1

  • Online

This tutorial will cover the principles and architectures of analog  digital converter design. The tutorial begins with a review of domain  conversion including sampling, aliasing, and usable bandwidth. Next,  quantization will be discussed with a focus on effective dynamic range  and linearity. The tutorial will conclude with a review of architectural  survey including single slope/dual slope ADCs, flash ADCs, successive  approximation, algorithmic ADCs, pipeline ADCs, sigma delta modulators  and continuous time sigma delta.

What you will learn:

  • Examine first principles including the importance of the domain conversion and keeping track of which domain we’re thinking in
  • Discuss basic specifications in the transfer function, time and the frequency domains
