Re: frequency sweep
Again, very good point.  The discrepancies are small in this case compared with the magnitude of the measurement.  Thanks to you for the kind words.  I enjoy the questions and interactions.  Thanks!

Re: frequency sweep
@Jonathan: thank you for this post, the small discrepancies are for sure due to this cause, however if the discrepancies with the actual measured data are small compared to the expected order of magnitude of the measurement, the approximation is valid.

Re: frequency sweep
Indeed, good points.  The ideal nature of the calculations does lend itself to some small discrepancies with the actual measured data.  I am always happy when measured data lines up closely with my calculated values. :-)

frequency sweep
I wonder if the error between theoretical and measured ADC noise depends on the frequency, due to capacitive or inductive effects that may appear as the operating frequency varies.

relative error
I think that an engineer has to take care of the absolute and relative error when evaluating theoretically a ADC noise and then measuring it.

More Blogs from Jonathan Harris
As somewhat of a continuation of my last blog topic I am once again returning to measurement of an LDO parameter as I look at the power supply rejection ratio (PSRR) of this device
Characterize the noise spectral density (NSD) of an LDO, otherwise known as a low dropout voltage regulator.
Now that we’ve had a chance to learn a bit about the tool we will take a look at using Virtual Eval to predict the performance of the AD9680-500 which has integrated digital downconverters (DDCs) and will compare simulated data to measured data.
As I mentioned in my last blog I would like to take some time in this blog to introduce you to the new online simulator tool offered by Analog Devices called Virtual Eval.
The IMS2016 IMS show has come to a close on its third and final day.
