Troubleshooting your SAR ADCs

This webcast discusses the three main areas of support circuitry associated with high resolution SAR ADCs. The first part focuses on how to drive the reference, choosing passive and active components, noise contributions and performance characteristics. Next, we discuss front end support circuitry, properly driving the ADC and overstress protection. We conclude by highlighting support tools for evaluating or prototyping with ADI converters.
