A System-Level Mixed-Signal Design Course
Paper in proceedings, 2015

We describe a system-level mixed-signal design course aimed at MSc-level students of embedded-system design. In order to cover a broad area and to reach students with varying backgrounds, we avoid detailed circuit-level discussions in favor of considerations of trade-offs at the system level. Following constructive-alignment principles, the course is built around a lab series which illustrates the fundamental topics covered. Two unusual features are the two-phase lab report submission and the dual oral/sit-down exams. Both features are generally appreciated by the students and contribute to a high pass/fail ratio and excellent student satisfaction.
