High Speed System Applications, 2006


High Speed System Applications, Edited by Walt Kester, Analog Devices, 2006, ISBN-1-56619-909-3.

This is the third seminar book on the topic of high speed systems. Section 1 of this seminar book gives a brief overview of popular high speed converter architectures and how specific applications often dictate the optimum architecture. Section 2 on data converter interfaces discusses analog input drive circuits, sampling clock drivers, and digital output interfaces. Section 3 covers DACs, DDS, PLLs, and clock distribution circuits, and Section 4 on PC board layout, grounding, and decoupling represents a very comprehensive treatment of a critical aspect of system design.
