Description of achievement and assessment methods

In a written final exam (60 min), students will demonstrate their insight into the basic concepts and structures of CMOS digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters, as well as their ability to apply them in practical design problems.

Recommended requirements

Solid-State and Semiconductor Device Physics, Analog and Mixed-Signal Electronics

Study Goals

Upon successful completion of the module, students are able to understand the concepts and structures of CMOS digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters, at system level and at transistor level, from basic to advanced architectures. Students understand the non-idealities of such circuits and are able to consider them for topology selection and device sizing, developing practical circuits according to given specifications.
