The Latest on Driving ADCs Differentially
This is the first of a two-part series addressing how to select the right differential ADC driver for your design. In part one we look at the basics of driving ADCs: topics include errors in sampled data systems such as distortion and noise, ENOB, differential signaling definitions and advantages, and ADC driver architectures. The second part of the series (to be broadcast next month) will take these basic concepts and use them to make the driver selection.
Who should attend?
Students and engineers new to the field, as well as those more experienced engineers looking for a refresher on this or any other part of the signal chain, design, and layout.
