Successive Approximation ADC

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

An analog-to-digital converter is a device that converts a continuous quantity to a discrete time digital representation. An ADC may also provide an isolated measurement. An analog or analogue signal is any continuous signal for which the time varying feature of the signal is a representation of some other time varying quantity, i. e. , analogous to

another time varying signal. It differs from a digital signal in terms of small fluctuations in the signal which are. A digital system is a data technology that uses discrete values. By contrast, non-digital systems use a continuous range of values to represent information. Quantization, in mathematics and digital signal processing, is the process of mapping a large set of input values to a smaller set such as rounding values to some unit of precision. A device or algorithmic function that performs quantization is called a quantizer. The error introduced by. Voltage, otherwise known as electrical potential difference or electric tension is the difference in electric potential between two points ” or the difference in electric potential energy per unit charge between two points. In electronics, a digital-to-analog converter is a device that converts a digital code to an analog signal. An analog-to-digital converter performs the reverse operation. In computer architecture, a processor register is a small amount of storage available as part of a CPU or other digital processor. Such registers are addressed by mechanisms other than main memory and can be accessed more quickly. In electronics, a comparator is a device that compares two voltages or currents and switches its output to indicate which is larger. They are commonly used in devices such as Analog-to-digital converters. - Input voltage range :. A digital system is a...
