Description Accurate and fast voltage monitoring is crucial in latest Automotive devices for newest electric and hybrid cars: precise balancing of battery cells during charging phase, monitoring of sensor signals, sensing of MCU supply lines for diagnostics are part of the applications where fast conversions are requested both for proper reaction in case of faults, both to allow muxing of several inputs reducing MCU calculation steps.
In this thesis, we propose the development of an advanced ADC in BCD technology to deal with fast conversion requirements.
Student will acquire competences in a2d converters and automotive application topics, basics of mixed signal design in latest BCD technologies, learning usage of latest CAD simulation tools and methodologies (cadence framework and Simulink among others) together with strong analog design skills.
