How Do You Analyze ADC Noise? Part 1

Jonathan Harris
More Blogs from Jonathan Harris
Previously in this blog series we looked at using a DC/DC converter (switching regulator) in combination with an LDO to drive the power supply inputs to an ADC. What we found was that using the DC/DC converter to step down the input voltage for the LDO was a much more efficient way to drive the power supply inputs to an ADC.
We look at using a DC/DC converter along with an LDO to drive the ADC power supply inputs.
I thought it would be good to continue looking at the example I gave in my last blog where we looked using fewer LDOs and combining power supply rails on an ADC while maintaining isolation with ferrite beads.
There are some disadvantages when driving low input supply voltages, where multiple LDOs may be required.
Keeping the power supply inputs on separate domains can minimize crosstalk and make it much harder for noise to interfere with ADC performance.
