Analog-to-digital converter (ADC) noise limits the dynamic range of many radio-frequency systems for test and measurement, sensor, and communications applications. Improvements in the total dynamic range (as measured by the SNR) can be achieved by combining M ADCs in parallel, yielding an increase in SNR of M if the noise is fully uncorrelated across ADC units. However, the presence of correlated ... View full abstract»
