A time-interleaved multichannel analog-to-digital converter (ADC) achieves high sampling rates with the drawback of additional distortions caused by channel mismatches. In this paper, we consider the dependency of the signal-to-noise-and-distortion ratio (SINAD) on the combination of several different channel mismatch effects. By using either explicitly given mismatch parameters or given parameter distributions, we derive closed-form equations for calculating the explicit or the expected SINAD for an arbitrary number of channels. Furthermore, we extend the explicit SINAD by the impact of timing jitter. We clarify how channel mismatches interact and perform a worst case analysis of the explicit SINAD for individual mismatch errors. We also show that equations describing the expected SINAD of individual mismatch errors are special cases of our general formulation. We indicate how to use the expected SINAD for finding efficient optimization priorities and demonstrate the importance of worst case analyses.
