Integrating analogue ICs onto digital design

Posted: 06 Mar 2013     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:analogue circuits  microprocessors  digital substrates 

Many digital devices incorporate analogue circuits. For instance, microprocessors, application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) may have internal voltage references, analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs) or digital-to-analogue converters (DACs). However, there are challenges when you integrate more analogue onto a digital design. As with all things in life, in electronics we must always trade one parameter for another, with the application dictating the proper trade-off of analogue function. In this application note, we examine how the demand for economy of space and cost pushes analogue circuits onto digital substrates, and what design challenges emerge.
