Neurosci., vol. 27, no. 9, pp. 2424-2432, 2007. 7. A high speed ADC backend For this project, a digital backend of a high speed flash ADC is implemented. The desired sample rate is 4GSamples/s, and the nominal resolution is 5 bits. Due to the extremely high throughput (20Gb/s), it’s impossible to test the ADC in real time at reasonable costs. There are two workarounds. The first is to decimate the ADC output until the data rate is within the equipment limit. The other is to store the data in a memory (shown as FIFO in the block diagram) and later read them for offline post-processing. Both approaches need to be implemented in this project. The design goal is to high throughput to process the sampled data.

Lab Important Dates: April 02, 2013: Submit your design topic. ( 5 pts ). April 22, 2013: Paper due along with LVS and DRC report. April 23, 2013: Project check off. ( 100pts ) Report As general guidelines, try to first understand the specifications before design implementation. Use HDL (Verilog-HDL/VHDL) as the design input . Go through the basic steps of general VLSI design flow (From HDL to GDS) . You will need to hand in both a soft copy and hard copy of your source code: 1. Hand in HDL source code, result of each step, design report. 2. Design description, implementation notes, simulation result and performance summary (Power, area and speed etc) should be mentioned in this design report. 3. Submit your DRC and LVS report without the pads. If you have the DRC and LVS clean report with the IO pads also you get extra credit. 4. Write a 4- page double column paper in IEEE format. Download a word file template from: http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/authors/transjnl/index.html The paper should include Title, Author list (group members), Abstract, Introduction, a section describing design methodology, a section describing results and discussions, Conclusions and Reference list. All figures, including schematics waveform, plots and layout must be embedded within the paper. The paper cannot exceed four pages in length. Figures should be chosen appropriately to best explain the overall design and results.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
