Simple Evaluation of the Nonlinearity Signature of an ADC Using a Spectral Approach

Figure 8

(a) Typical magnitude spectrum obtained from the prototype Pipeline ADC output. (b) Comparison between two INL estimations: In thin (blue) line, the real INL. In thick (black) line the INL estimation from the spectral approach and (12) using the spectrum in (a) (gain and offset effects have been corrected).
