Mixed-signal Circuits and Systems

John G. Kenney

Discuss design and simulation methodologies for realizing robust analog CMOS circuits implementing major building blocks in A/D conversion. With attention to design specifications, a comprehensive study of single-ended and differential op-amp topologies will be covered with an emphasis on: feedback and stability; linear and non-linear settling; distortion; noise; and voltage swing. Conclude with swtiched-capacitor circuits exploring impact of non-linearity and noise in sampled systems. Design projects using circuit simulators reinforce theoretical concepts.
