Calculation of the spectrum of error at the output of an analogdigital converter
Abstract
Analogdigital conversion is investigated for a normal random process at a finite number of quantization levels. It is found that the error spectrum is considerably wider than the signal spectrum, which is chosen as 2. For instance, at 2deltaf of approximately 26, the exponential correlation function gain reaches 10; for a Gaussian correlation function it is 5. It is concluded that output linear filtering leads to a significant gain in the singaltonoise ratio.
