On-chip spectrum analyzer for built-in testing analog ICS Conference Paper uri icon


  • An on-chip spectrum analyzer using switched-capacitor techniques is described. This system is used for built-in testing analog circuits. The main property of the proposed architecture is its inherent synchronization, which facilitates the testing task saving time, power and silicon area. Simulations and breadboard results are presented in order to verify the main principles. The resolution of the on-chip spectrum analyzer is limited to 8 bits.
