# Data Converters

Simulate and analyze performance metrics of analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog data converters. Start from complete system-level models of typical ADC or DAC architectures. Modify ADC or DAC parameters until you reach your desired system specifications. Use Measurements and Testbenches to validate your design.
