The Latest on Driving ADCs Differentially: Part 2
This is the second of a two-part series addressing how to select the right differential ADC driver for your design. In part one we looked at the basics of driving ADCs, including errors in sampled data systems (such as distortion and noise) ENOB, differential signaling definitions, and advantages of ADC driver architectures. This month we will take these basic concepts and use them to make the driver selection and design driving circuits.
