This paper introduces a structure for the compensation of frequency-response mismatch errors in M-channel time-interleaved analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). It makes use of a number of fixed digital filters, approximating differentiators of different orders, and a few variable multipliers that correspond to parameters in polynomial models of the channel frequency responses. Whenever the channel frequency responses change, which occurs from time to time in a practical time-interleaved ADC, it suffices to alter the values of these variable multipliers. In this way, expensive on-line filter design is avoided. The paper includes several design examples that illustrate the properties and capabilities of the proposed structure.
