This thesis describes an embedded undersampling system for capturing analog wave-forms and monitoring signal integrity throughout a signal path. It is intended for use in Gigabit serial products, such as crosspoints and other networking products. Design reuse and simple components were the most important design parameters. The system has a small layout, a simple digital interface, and does not require a separate sample-and--hold circuit. The final system has 15 mV minimum resolution, operates over common-mode logic signals from 1.8V to 1.4V, and accurately captures signals up to 2GHz.
