Sample/Arbitrary Hold

Sample-Hold Using A/D Conversion Permits Analog Data to Be Stored Digitally for Arbitrarily-Long Intervals Without Droop. Digital Readout is Available, Too.

As we have indicated on page 7 of this issue, digital storage can provide the benefits of arbitrarily-long  hold duration with no droop. Other advantages include: no sample-hold offset, no feedthrough, no dielectric absorption effects, and no sample-to-hold transients or settling time, since the system is automatically in hold after a conversion, unless a sample command is applied.
