For spectral testing of Built-in Self-Test Analog to Digital Converters, it is a very challenging task to precisely control the amplitude and frequency of input sinusoid signal. Amplitude over-range results in clipping ADC output and non-coherent sampling results in spectral leakage. In this paper, a new method is proposed that provides accurate spectral results even when the input to ADC is both over-ranged and non-coherently sampled. This relaxes the condition to have precise control over the… CONTINUE READING
