Selecting the Best Data Converter for a Given Noise Budget: Part 3


Abstract: The practical use of industry data sheets is demonstrated to determine what system specifications can be achieved, in the presence of system errors, such as data-converter quantization, clock jitter, channel nonlinearity, and input- and output-referred noise. Design tools that aid in the analysis of these parameters, and constructive ways to control and reduce other system noise elements are highlighted.
