The Challenges of Simplifying the Signal Chain

A typical signal chain starts with a sensor followed by an interface amplifier, signal conditioning blocks, an ADC Driver, an ADC, and a digital processing engine. Most digital systems have processing power to replace some or all of the analog signal chain and this presentation will look at the benefits and challenges associated with simplifying the signal chain and the practical aspects that limit the user from fully realizing the benefits.
