Nyquist-Rate Data Converters for Signal Conversion
Pp. 153-183 (31)
This chapter outlines the fundamental performance metrics and the dynamic characteristics of data
converters. Nyquist-rate data converters which appropriately apply in the utilization of modern communications
are introduced. The Nyquist-rate DAC, such as resistor string DAC, binary-weighted resistor DAC, charge
redistribution DAC, and current steering DAC, are illustrated. And the Nyquist-rate ADC, such as flash ADC,
folding ADC, two-step ADC, and pipelined ADC, are presented.
