Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of and experience in concepts, analysis, design and test of analog-digital interfaces for a wide range of applications. Experience in design methods and design flows as well as tools to test analog-digital interfaces is also acquired.

After the course, the students should be able to:

  • explain the basic design concepts for analog-digital interfaces
  • apply knowledge in analysis, simulation, design, and test of interfaces and their building blocks
  • identify critical parameters that influence the performance of analog-digital interfaces
  • select and design the most appropriate analog-digital interface architecture for a specific application.

Course main content

The main theme of this course concerns concepts, analysis and test of analog-digital interfaces and their building blocks such as:

  • sample/hold circuits and active filters for signal conditioning
  • analog-digital and digital-analog converters
  • performance metrics for data converters
  • Nyquist rate and oversampling analog-digital and digital-analog converters
  • design and testing methodologies


Basic knowledge in electronics and signal processing is required.
