On completion of this subject, students should have an understanding of some advanced topics in digital system design, taken from the following.
Timing in digital systems - clock distribution, including sources and management of skew; metastability and synchronisation; the effect of loading; synchronous and asynchronous bit level transport, including line coding, scrambling, clock recovery, timing requirements, jitter (sources and effect), jitter filtering and bit stuffing.
Noise in digital systems - signal referencing; grounding; crosstalk; simultaneous switching; power supply distributions and related issues including impedance of parallel planes, loss and damping, impedance control over frequency, decoupling and interaction of lumped and distributed impedances.
Interfacing to the analogue world - sample and hold circuits; techniques for converting between analogue and digital representations of signal; noise analysis and quantisation effects.
On completion of this subject the student should be able to:
The relative weighting of test and/or project report will be specified both in the first lecture and on the subject web page at the start of semester.
