    How Much Do You Know About Delta-Sigma ADCs?

    rscasny

      So you think that you know everything there is to know about delta-sigma ADCs? Okay, then answer these questions:

       

      • How do delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters obtain precise resolution across different bandwidths?

       

      • How are delta-sigma ADCs different from other types of data converters?

       

      • A delta-sigma ADC is constructed from from a delta-sigma modulator and a ___________.

       

      If you didn't answer the above questions with "digital filter," then you should put March 22nd on your calendar and attend Texas Instruments' Webinar entitled TI SAR ADCs vs. Delta-Sigma ADCs: Different Architectures for Different Applications

       

      This webinar will cover the architecture for the two most common types of precision analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that are widely used in a variety of consumer, automotive and industrial applications.

       

      While SAR ADCs are based on a traditional binary search algorithm, delta-sigma ADCs employ different configurations of complicated digital filtering to enhance the overall resolution of the ADC. Such differences in architectures lead to differences in specifications and application use cases between the two ADC types. It will also cover some key ADC specifications like noise, total unadjusted error, etc. and provide a comparative explanation for these specifications.
