Education 13.10 Practical Considerations of ADC Circuits adminJan 30, 20200 Perhaps the most important consideration of an ADC is its resolution. Resolution is the number of binary bits output by...

Education 13.9 Delta-Sigma ADC adminJan 30, 20200 One of the more advanced ADC technologies is the so-called delta-sigma, or ΔΣ (using the proper Greek letter...

Education 13.8 Slope (integrating) ADC adminJan 30, 20200 So far, we’ve only been able to escape the sheer volume of components in the flash converter by using a DAC as part...

Education 13.7 Tracking ADC adminJan 30, 20200 A third variation on the counter-DAC-based converter theme is, in my estimation, the most elegant. Instead of a regular...

Education 13.6 Successive Approximation ADC adminJan 30, 20200 One method of addressing the digital ramp ADC’s shortcomings is the so-called successive-approximation ADC. The only...

Education 13.5 Digital Ramp ADC adminJan 30, 20200 Also known as the stairstep-ramp, or simply counter A/D converter, this is also fairly easy to understand but...

Education 13.4 Flash ADC adminJan 30, 20200 Also called the parallel A/D converter, this circuit is the simplest to understand. It is formed of a series of...

Education 13.3 The R/2R DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) adminJan 30, 20200 The R/2R DAC circuit is an alternative to the binary-weighted-input (R/2nR) DAC which uses fewer unique resistor...

Education 13.2 The R/2nR DAC: Binary-Weighted-Input Digital-to-Analog Converter adminJan 30, 20200 What Is a R/2nR DAC Circuit? The R/2nR DAC circuit, otherwise known as the binary-weighted-input DAC, is a variation on...

Education 13.1 Introduction to Digital-Analog Conversion adminJan 30, 20200 Connecting digital circuitry to sensor devices is simple if the sensor devices are inherently digital themselves....
