Re: Re : More Thoughts on Interleaved ADCs
Thanks for the link, SunitaT.  It looks like an interesting read.  Keep your eyes out as I hope to make it onto the subject of calibration soon.  First though, I'll finish up discussing the various mismatches.

Re : More Thoughts on Interleaved ADCs
Time interleaving can relax the speed-power trade-off of analog-to-digital converters but at the cost of sensitivity to inter-channel mismatches. I found this paper from ulca very useful.

Re: Asynchronous Time Interleaving by Tektronix
Hi Frank, quite an interesting read there.  I hadn't thought of interleaving in such a fashion.  I think mostly of time interleaving.  I can tell the paper is at a pretty high level and only skims the surface of what is really going on.  I did notice they were a bit vague on the detials of the ADC.  There is mention at one point along the lines of "The resulting data from the pre-sampler could then be sampled by the ADC at a rate independent from the pre-sampler, such as 100GS/s."  I am not aware of any 100GS/s ADCs out there though...all in all though, it is an interesting read for sure.  Thanks for the comment and the link.

Asynchronous Time Interleaving by Tektronix
Jonathan, do you have any comments on the Asynchronous Time Interleaving presented by Tektronix in the paper available from http://www.tek.com/document/whitepaper/techniques-extending-real-time-oscilloscope-bandwidth ?

Re: Interleaved ADCs
@Maciel Thanks for the comments.  Indeed there are some things to consider when interleaving such as the spur products that are produced....but that is coming soon in my next blog...

Interleaved ADCs
I've had some problems when using converters ADCs, but with the advancement of the uC is difficult to justify the use of them, except for equipment that require specific methods of acquiring signals differently.

The Texas instruments wrote a good article giving tips for using converters ADCs that are faster, worth checking out ...

As an engineer it is always rewarding when one can calculate an expected result and see the measurement in the lab line up with that calculation.
In Part 1, our blogger looked at how many clocking products specify the phase noise of the device but don't specify jitter. In the second part, he offers a real-life example.
Many clocking products specify the phase noise of the device but don't specify jitter. Let's take a look at how we can go from phase noise to jitter.
One of the most critical areas on an ADC that can affect performance is clock noise. Good layout and routing techniques coupled with an optional filter can do wonders in improving key specs.
There are many ways in which noise can enter an ADC or signal distortion can occur. We look at some of these, including aliasing.
