Dynamic Testing of High-Speed ADCs, Part 2


Abstract: Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) represent the link between analog and digital worlds in receivers, test equipment and other electronic devices. As outlined in Part 1 of this article series, a number of key dynamic parameters provide an accurate correlation of the dynamic performance to be expected from a given ADC. Part 2 of this article series covers some of the setup configurations, equipment recommendations and measurement procedures for testing the dynamic specifications of high-speed ADCs.
