A new method for selecting analog to digital (A/D) converters based on a generic figure of merit is described. First a figure of merit is introduced that includes both specifications and technology data and that has five generic parameters. The values of these generic parameters can be found by means of a fitting procedure using data from published designs. It is shown that the generic parameters have different values for different types of converters. Therefore the trade-off between speed, resolution, power …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
