High Speed Time Interleaved ADCs for Software Defined Radios

Event Date: 
Thursday, November 5, 2015

Dr. Eric Fogleman, Senior Director, RF/Mixed-Signal Design at MaxLinear will be giving a guest lecture at Prof. Galton's ECE264C class on November 5th at 8am in Center Hall 201. Dr. Fogleman is an alumnus of UC San Diego's ECE Dept. 

Software Defined Radios have been the holy grail of all the communication systems as it gives the operators unprecedented flexibility and configurability on systems that have already been deployed. Already, in the area of terrestrial TV reception, Cable modem and Satellite set top boxes, this vision is becoming a reality with the first commercial products becoming available now. This tutorial will cover the requirements, design trade-offs and circuit techniques for the high speed ADCs that enable these new applications. Time interleaving has emerged as one key technique enabling these unprecedented speeds. Recent advances in the calibration and corrections of time interleaved ADCs will be covered in detail. This will then be followed by a discussion of core ADC architectures and front-end sampling circuits enabling these ADCs.
