Abstract:

This report presents the spectra of various quantized input signals obtained by laboratory measurement at the output of a 5-bit-plus-sign analog-to- digital AD converter. The results demonstrate the spectral dynamic range capability for single and multitonal inputs, with and without injected band- limited noise. Optimum input level adjustment, that is, AD converter biasing, is determined as a function of input signal type. These measurements are verified in theory, wherever possible.
