Re: Re : Interleaving Spurs: The Mathmatics of Timing Mismatch
Thanks for the comments yalanand.  You are correct, probably the simplest interleaving mismatch to look at is the offset mismatch.  I've discussed that here http://www.planetanalog.com/author.asp?section_id=3041&doc_id=560484 and here http://www.planetanalog.com/author.asp?section_id=3041&doc_id=561191

Definitely appreciate all these comments from everyone, please keep them coming! :-)

Re : Interleaving Spurs: The Mathmatics of Timing Mismatch
Probably the calmest of these to realize is the offset disparity between the two ADCs.  Each ADC would have a related DC offset value. When the two ADCs are enclosed and samples are learned alternatively back and forth among the two ADCs, the DC offset of each consecutive sample is altering.

Re: Timing
Hi Sunita, thanks for the comment. You are correct, typically SFDR is defined by the fundamenatl and the most prominent harmonic. In the case of the interleaved ADC, with enough mismatch, the interleaving spur can be significantly higher than the highest harmonic.  In this case, it drives what the actual SFDR is since the dynamic range is then typically limited by the amplitude of the interleaving spur.

Mathematics has always been a nightmare for, but if we refer SFDR it is between the amplitude of the frequency being generated and the amplitude of the most prominent harmonic.

Before looking into the signal chain portion of the tool we began by looking at the calculator tool available in ADIsimRF.
The topic of this blog came up while at the IMS show and one of my colleagues mentioned that I should discuss the ADIsimRF tool as a part of the series. I thought this was a marvelous idea. Iíll have to precursor this discussion with the fact that I am actually an RF guy from my previous employment at an RF company which was my first position when I graduated from college.
One of the questions that appeared on one of the IMS blog posts was about the details of the demonstration I had set up at the Analog Devices booth.
The last and final day of the show is usually has the most relaxed atmosphere and this year that proved to be the case once again. It is the shortest day of the show lasting from just 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
After having a pretty good first day of the show, I was looking forward to a good second day and it did not disappoint. The second day of the show on Wednesday is the longest day of the show as the exhibit hours go from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM (day one is 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and day three is 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM).
