12.3 Understanding signal to noise ratio and noise spectral density in high speed data converters
This presentation will go over the concept of Signal to Noise Ratio or SNR, by defining the meaning of SNR. A detailed examination of the different components that make up the noise portion of SNR will be explored. This includes thermal noise, quantization noise, and jitter of the quantization clock. Next, Noise Spectral Density ,or NSD, and SNR will be compared.
