Mixed-signal processing implies the use of both analog and digital in the same system; this is a specialized type of signal processing that requires a high level of experience and training. Knowledge of digital signal processing (DSP) techniques is now becoming a requirement of almost every engineer. This book focuses primarily on signal processing hardware, how it works, how to interface to it, and how to design it and debug it.
This is the first volume in a new Newnes
professional/reference series in partnership with Analog Devices. Analog Devices Inc.
(ADI) are the acknowledged world authorities on data conversion and signal processing. Many of the world's foremost experts on analog, digital, and mixed signal processing are employed by Analog Devices, and they have contributed to this volume.
The reader is provided with information on how to choose between the techniques and how to design a system that takes advantage of the best features of each of them. Imminently practical in approach, the book covers sampled data systems, choosing A-to-D and D-to-A converters for DSP applications, fast Fourier transforms
, digital filters, selecting DSP hardware, interfacing to DSP chips, and hardware design techniques. It contains a number of application designs with thorough explanations. Heavily illustrated, the book contains all the design reference information that engineers need when developing mixed and digital signal processing systems.
:) "This is a book by a set of experts and edited by an experienced practitioner -- Walt Kester, a Staff Applications Engineer at Analog Devices. He has designed, developed, and given applications support for high-speed ADCs, DACs, sample-hold amplifiers, op amps, and multiplexers -- and it shows, as evidenced by his authoritative, practical, down-to-earth approach."
