8.1 Understanding and Comparisons of High-Speed Analog-to-Digital (ADC) and Digital-to-Analog (DAC) Converter Architectures


Date: August 2, 2017

This video is part of the TI Precision Labs – ADCs curriculum.  A discussion of High-Speed Data Converter Architectures:  First we discuss the basic architecture of a flash ADC stage, and then show how it is used as the core structure in more complex ADC architectures such as a pipelined ADC. Interleaved ADCs are discussed as well as Successive Approximation ADCs.  Second the basic DAC core architectures are presented using current source and current sink implementations.
