12.1 Comparing high-speed analog-to-digital (ADC) and digital-to-analog (DAC) converter architectures
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.
