Techniques to Measure and Maximize the Performance of a 120 dB, 24-Bit, 96-kHz A/D Converter Integrated Circuit
In order to realize maximum performance from an A/D converter chip, many subtleties must be addressed in the external environment in order to make sure that the performance is not degraded. This paper briefly describes the architecture of an example A/D converter, discusses some trade-offs in the external circuit design, and concludes with some measurement issues and results. The techniques discussed also form a basis for users' own designs, allowing predictable realization of maximum performance.
