A Glossary of Analog-to-Digital Specifications and Performance Characteristics (Rev. B)


This glossary is a collection of the definitions of Texas Instruments' Delta-Sigma (ΔΣ), successive approximation register (SAR), and pipeline analog-to-digital (A/D) converter specifications and performance characteristics. Although there is a considerable amount of detail in this document, the product data sheet for a particular product specification is the best and final reference.
