Sine-fitting by the energy-based method in the dynamic testing of ADCs

The paper proposes a sine-fit algorithm exploiting the Energy-Based Method (EBM) to estimate the sine-wave parameters. Its use in the estimation of Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) spectral parameters like SIgnal-to-Noise And Distortion (SINAD) ratio and Effective Number Of Bits (ENOB) is investigated. A performance comparison with some state-of-the-art… CONTINUE READING
