Application Note from ADI
>> Application Note AN-835, "Understanding High-Speed ADC Testing and Evaluation," defines overrange recovery as the time required for an ADC to recover to the rated accuracy after an input transient moves from 10% above positive full 

I truly like Application Notes from ADI, world-class and exceptionally produced. The same goes for the datasheets. Overranged converters and converters have been the domain of the firm as they control that sector. Overranged converter is one thing I try to avoid. I prefer to be within the range by scaling appropriately.

My dear friend, Neil Albaugh—a veritable analog ‘Wizard’, wrote an often unnoticed handbook in January 2000 at Burr-Brown which stands the time 16 years later and will be still relevant in the future as well---Analog basics are “evergreen”.
I am setting my signal generator to output a CW tone at a certain power, which per my math, should give a -1dBFS signal at the ADC. However, I am seeing -15dBFS! Who ate all of my dBs?

On July 23, 2015 Kepler discovered the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a star acting as a sun. This effort helps to find another “Earth” which may inhabit life forms.
