Tutorials on ADC design:

The following tutorials are derived from chapters from my Master's thesis which explain various aspects of ADC architectures and design. The basic content is useful for anyone who is new to ADC design and more specifically pipelined ADC design. Please feel free to provide me with any feedback or comments.


  • [ADC architectures tutorial] This tutorial briefly discusses different ADC architectures as well as the motivation for using different architectures. A detailed explanation of the architecture of a pipeline stage in a pipelined ADC is given.


  • [Pipelined ADC design tutorial] This tutorial briefly describes some of the key design issues of pipelined ADC design as well as addressing some of the key tradeoffs.
