Integrated Analog-To-Digital and Digital-To-Analog by Rudy Van De Plassche (auth.)

By Rudy Van De Plassche (auth.)

Analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) converters give you the hyperlink among the analog global of transducers and the electronic international of sign processing, computing and different electronic facts assortment or information processing structures. various kinds of converters were designed, every one utilizing the simplest to be had expertise at a given time for a given software. for instance, high-performance bipolar and MOS applied sciences have led to the layout of high-resolution or high-speed converters with purposes in electronic audio and video structures. additionally, high-speed bipolar applied sciences let conversion speeds to arrive the gigaHertz diversity and hence have functions in HDTV and electronic oscilloscopes.
Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters describes intensive the idea at the back of and the sensible layout of those circuits. It describes different recommendations to enhance the accuracy in high-resolution A/D and D/A converters and in addition distinct suggestions to lessen the variety of components in high-speed A/D converters through repetitive use of comparators.
Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters is the main accomplished publication to be had at the topic. ranging from the fundamental components of conception invaluable for a whole figuring out of the layout of A/D and D/A converters, this e-book describes the layout of high-speed A/D converters, high-accuracy D/A and A/D converters, sample-and-hold amplifiers, voltage and present reference resources, noise-shaping coding and sigma-delta converters.
Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters includes a complete bibliography and index and likewise encompasses a whole set of difficulties. This e-book is perfect to be used in a sophisticated path at the topic and is a vital reference for researchers and practising engineers.

SOC Design Methodologies: IFIP TC10 / WG10.5 Eleventh by P. Lamaty, B. Mazar, D. Demigny, L. Kessal, M. Karabernou

By P. Lamaty, B. Mazar, D. Demigny, L. Kessal, M. Karabernou (auth.), Prof. Michel Robert, Prof. Bruno Rouzeyre, Prof. Christian Piguet, Dr. Marie-Lise Flottes (eds.)

The eleven th IFIP overseas convention on Very huge Scale Integration, in Montpellier, France, December 3-5,2001, was once a superb luck. the focus used to be approximately IP Cores, Circuits and procedure Designs & functions in addition to SOC layout equipment and CAD. This publication comprises the simplest papers (39 between 70) which were provided throughout the convention. these papers care for all features of value for the layout of the present and destiny built-in structures. procedure on Chip (SOC) layout is this day a huge problem for designers, as a SOC may perhaps comprise very diverse blocks, equivalent to microcontrollers, DSPs, thoughts together with embedded DRAM, analog, FPGA, RF front-ends for instant communications and built-in sensors. the entire layout of such chips, in very deep submicron applied sciences right down to 0.13 mm, with a number of countless numbers of thousands of transistors, provided at under 1 Volt, is a really not easy activity if layout, verification, debug and commercial attempt are thought of. The microelectronic revolution is interesting; fifty five years in the past, in past due 1947, the transistor was once invented, and everyone understands that it was once by means of William Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter H. Brattein, Bell cellphone Laboratories, which bought the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1956. most likely, all people thinks that it used to be well-known instantly as a tremendous invention.
