A/D Converter Calculations for RF Applications

A/D Converter Calculations for RF Applications - RF CafeThese equations predict the RF electrical performance of Analog-to-Digital Converters. Since A/D converters are often the last stage in a receiver chain, it is extremely useful to be able to predict the contribution for noise figure, jitter, dynamic range, etc., since those values are needed for a complete cascade analysis. Be sure to note units both for the input parameters and for the equations, or you will end up with really bad results.

An A/D Converter Calculator is included in RF Cafe Calculator Workbook for FREE.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
