Input voltage noise

Describes the analog frontend’s noise-floor

  • Represented as an amplitude spectral density (magnitude of input voltage noise at different frequencies normalized to a 1 Hz bandwidth)
  • It is impossible to resolve spectral features below the input voltage noise-floor.
  • Key specification for lock-in amplifiers as it can limit signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in weak-signal applications

ADC noise-free code resolution

Number of bits of resolution beyond which it is no longer possible to resolve individual codes

  • Measured for 3 µs at 500 MSa/s with 50 Ω terminated inputs
  • Calculated based on peak-to-peak ’code noise’ at the output of the ADC with terminated inputs. Units are Least Significant Bits (LSBs).
  • Noise-free code resolution = log2(2N / [ 6.6 x σ ]) where σ is the RMS error (standard deviation) of the code noise distribution and 2N is the full range of the ADC

ADC cross-talk

Cross-talk (interference) from one ADC to the other

  • Measured from 120 MHz down to 1 MHz where radio-frequency (RF) cross-talk is most severe
  • Cross-talk is caused by the coupling of electro-magnetic radiation from one conducting element (wire) to another. The wires in electronic circuits act as antennas.
