Interleaved analog-digital converter (ADC) systems can be used to increase the sampling rate for a given ADC implementation technique. In theory, the maximum sampling rate that can be achieved is limited only by the bandwidth and the practical limits related to the power and space of integrated circuits. In this paper, a solution to increase the sampling rate of a digitizing system based on interleaved ADCs is presented. An error analysis, which takes into consideration offset and gain errors of the different ADC channels, is performed in order to quantify the effect of such errors in the system's performance. A software method based on the fast Fourier transform is presented for offset and gain error compensation of interleaved ADC associations. Numerical simulations and experimental results are used to validate the theory and the proposed compensation algorithm.
