Abstract:

Analysis and simulation show that the correlation loss experienced by a Gaussian signal passed through an odd quantizer is independent of the signal-to-noise ratio at the input when the input rms value is fixed. The correlation coefficient of input signal component and quantizer output is shown to be a weighted version of the corresponding input correlation coefficient. Furthermore, intervals of input rms voltage exist over which a given linear quantizer should be operated to minimize correlation loss. Author
