Digital signal frequency constantly increases due to the market demand for faster and stronger digital instruments. Working in these frequencies required test equipment that samples the digital signal at a very high rate of Giga Herts. Fast testing equipment is very expensive and requires costly maintenance. The industry is desperate for testing equipment at a higher frequency that would be cheap and reliable.
Switched capacitor Array is an innovative technology which allows sampling and saving an electronic signal at a high rate in a very cheap cost. PSI company produces a component that uses this technology to sample signals at a rate of 5Ghz, The component known as the DRS4.
The project aims to implement a 5Ghz rate real time oscilloscope in a price range of under 200$.
The students will acquire knowledge in board design and mix signal design
Project prerequisite: logic design
