A time-interleaved multichannel analog-to-digital converter (ADC) achieves high sampling rates with the drawback of additional distortions caused by channel mismatches. In this paper, we consider the dependency of the signal-to-noise-and-distortion ratio (SINAD) on the combination of several different channel mismatch effects. By using either explicitly given mismatch parameters or given parameter distributions, we derive closed-form equations for calculating the explicit or the expected SINAD… 
Analysis and Correction of Combined Channel Mismatch Effects in Frequency-Interleaved ADCs
An integrated channel mismatch compensation scheme is proposed that contrasts existing signal recovery approaches which calibrate specific types of errors separately and is compared with conventional solutions using extensive simulations.

Effect of Offset Mismatch in Time-Interleaved ADC Circuits on OFDM-BER Performance
This paper analyzes the effect of the offset mismatch in time-interleaved analog-to-digital converter (TI-ADC) circuits on bit error rate (BER) performance of a receiver for pulse amplitude-modulated or quadrature amplitude- modulated signals in orthogonal frequency division multiplexed systems and shows that the tolerable level of theoffset mismatch is proportional to the square-root of the number of sub-ADCs.

This work is a deep study of the impact of random time skew, gain and offset mismatches on theSNR, and the SNR probability density function is determined as a function of both these errors and the number of channels.
