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 ...

Increase the decimation ratio in the DDC to see the effects of frequency folding and translating when a higher decimation rate is employed along with frequency tuning with the NCO.
Let’s now take a look at a real example with the AD9680-500. We’ll see how this simple yet powerful tool can be used to aid in understanding the aliasing effects of an ADC as well as help with understanding effects of some digital processing blocks in the AD9680.
Back in my April blog post this year, we took some time to look at the Frequency Folding Tool that is available on the Analog Devices web site. I would like to revisit this tool as there have been a few handy improvements that have been made based on some great feedback.
The ADIsimRF tool has many different calculation possibilities which are very nice to have on the hand. These can be useful when either in the lab collecting data or when working on a report in your office. The tool outputs are great to double check experimental results or to set expectations when about to take data.
Before looking into the signal chain portion of the tool we began by looking at the calculator tool available in ADIsimRF.
