1. 
Design
noise–shaping data converters given a set of requirements such as
bandwidth,
clock speed, and signal–to–noise ratio. 
2. 
Design,
simulate, and implement the digital interpolation and decimation
filters used
in noise–shaping data converters. 
3.  Design,
simulate, and implement the analog filters used for anti–aliasing and
reconstruction
in a data conversion system.

4.  Discuss
the limitations of op–amps and comparators used in noise–shaping data
converters.

5.  Simulate noise–shaping
data converting circuits and systems and the filtering used. 
6.  Design a high–speed noise–shaping converter using a cascaded modulator or the K–Delta–1–Sigma topology.
