Abstract

Modern electronics systems in computers, communications, automotive, instrumentation, etc., are mostly mixed-signal systems. That means that some signals (inputs, outputs or internal signals) are analog, while other are digital. In some applications, the digital circuitry operates as a control, calibration or storage system, while the processing is made in the analog domain. Such approximation might be suitable where the minimization of the power consumption and occupation area have priority over the resolution [Nish93]; as, for instance, in microsystems (sensors + analog circuitry + digital circuitry) used for acquisition and on-line processing of images [Espe96] . However, in many applications only the inputs and outputs are analog; the use of analog circuitry is, thus, restricted to the interfaces (signal conditioning and analog-to-digital or digital-to-analog conversion), while the processing is made by digital circuits (DSP) [Gray87] . This has promoted the use of digital techniques in applications traditionally reserved to the analog ones. Such trends are based on the simplicity of the design and testing, robustness, flexibility and easy programming of digital circuits with respect to the analog circuits.
