Analog Tip; Choosing SAR vs Sigma-Delta ADCs for high dynamic range applications October 17, 2014 Analog Tip; Choosing SAR vs Sigma-Delta ADCs for high dynamic range applications High-performance data-acquisition signal chains used in industrial, instrumentation, and medical equipment require wide dynamic range and accurate measurements. The dynamic range of an ADC can be increased by adding a programmable-gain amplifier or operating multiple ADCs in parallel, using digital post-processing ...
