Abstract:

A general study was made of simplified means of analog-to-digital conversion, with emphasis on high speed and high-precision encoding. Upon the completion of the study, 2 analog-to-digital converter systems were implemented in the form of feasibility models one a high-speed system capable of encoding wideband signals to 3-bit precision at a 60 megabit rate in the frequency range from 0 to 10 mc the other a 5-channel multiplex system capable of the simultaneous encoding of information to flexibility in analogto-digital conversion systems, while the highspeed system represents the state of the art with regard to high speed in a fully implemented analog-to-digital conversion system. Both systems contain special instrumentation equipment in the form of decoders which perform a digitalto-analog conversion, allowing complete processing of digital information to study and evaluate effects of encoding.
