Overview

*Takes a less theoretical, less mathematical, and more applications-oriented approach
• Emphasizes commonly used devices and systems that engineers encounter in their daily tasks
• Aims to develop an intuitive understanding of mixed signal testing

Mark Baker provides a "crash course" in the fundamental theory, concepts, and terminology of mixed signal devices and systems and the techniques used to test them. Mixed signal devices/systems include analog to digital and digital to analog converters, digital signal processing, phase-locked loops (PLLs), compact disc (CD) and digital video disc (DVD) players and recorders—in short, almost any system or device that processes real-world analog data in digital form uses mixed signals technology and will require engineers to have an understanding of the techniques described in this book.

Mixed Signal Test Methods Demystified is a less theoretical, less mathematical, and more applications-oriented approach than other books available on the topic. In effect, this book will give readers a "just in time" understanding of the essentials of mixed signal testing techniques. Emphasis will be on commonly used devices and systems (such as PLLs and DSP) that engineers encounter in their daily tasks. Sampling theory is covered in detail, as this is the foundation for understanding all mixed signal testing technique, and readers will have a strong intuitive grasp of this topic after finishing this book.

Baker aims to develop an intuitive understanding of mixed signal testing that minimizes the mathematics required and is germane to the sort of testing requirements found in typical engineering situations.

Audience: Electrical and Electronics Engineers designing systems and circuits that employ some form of mixed signal technology as well as Engineering technicians, scientists and students in related fields.

Meet the Author

Mark Baker has been a test engineer for such companies as Spectra-Physics, Zilog, Pragmatic Test Systems, Schlumberger, Teradyne, and EPRO. In 1997, he founded his own company, TechniCom, which was devoted to technical training courses and seminars; one of their courses was on mixed-signal testing. In the fall of 2001, TechniCom was acquired by Texas Instruments and Baker is now a technical training manager for TI. Baker has published numerous in-house application articles for the ATE companies Teradyne and Schlumberger as well as articles in Electronics Test and Evaluation Engineering magazines.
