In this paper, the use of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) test to measure the integral nonlinearity (INL) of analog-todigital (A/D) converters is examined. The derived INL is a linear combination of Chebyshev polynomials, where the coefficients are the spurious harmonics of the output spectrum. The accuracy of the test is examined theoretically, in… (More)

The work presented in this paper builds on previous research done by the authors in detailing a novel procedure for obtaining a very fast measurement of the integral nonlinearity of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The core of the method is the parametric spectral estimation of the ADC output; the static characteristic is subsequently reconstructed as… (More)

The paper deals with the problem of measuring the moisture of agricultural soils by an accurate, on-site, real-time method. The idea is to estimate the moisture by measuring the speed of sound in the medium: the main issue is therefore to determine a precise relationship between the two quantities. To this purpose, the Brutsaert’s model for elastic waves in… (More)

The paper gives formulae for evaluating the uncertainty of measurements (both ‘‘direct’’ and ‘‘indirect’’) performed through an ADC-based device (like an oscilloscope, a plug-in DAQ board, etc.). The way of modeling the errors and writing the specifications is discussed. The formulae allow one to evaluate the measurement uncertainty with any given level of… (More)

In this paper, a new frequency-domain approach to measure and correct the static nonlinearity error of analog-to-digital converters is analyzed. The nonlinearity is measured as a linear combination of the Chebyshev polynomials, whose coefficients are derived via frequency-domain analysis, and corrected with a nonlinear equation solving method, which makes… (More)

A new method is presented for the calibration and the linearity testing of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and dc digital instruments, such as digital voltmeters (DVMs). The test is truly static, because it uses only dc voltages with a small superimposed noise (dithering). It is much faster than that described in the IEEE Standard 1057/94 since it uses… (More)
