2 Introduction What is an analog to digital converter (ADC)
Going from analog to digital Types and properties of ADC

3 What is an Analog to Digital Converter
Converts an analog signal to discrete time digital Computers need digital. (On / Off , High / Low , 1/0)

4 Going from Analog to Digital
Two step process Sampling – Measuring analog signal at uniform time intervals Quantization – Assigning discrete measurements a binary code (each sample will have a binary number associated with it) Example of digital signal from 3 bit ADC T T T T4

5 Aliasing Every analog signal has a frequency
Nyquist Frequency (half sampling frequency) Aliasing occurs when signal above Nyquist frequency

6 Quantization Error Analog (infinite values) – Digital (finite values)
Upon reconstruction of analog signal Increases as resolution decreases Resolution - Q EFSR - full scale voltage range N = Number of discrete voltage intervals N = 2k where k is the number of bits

7 Quantization Error Quantized signal only has values at midpoint of voltage band

8 Types of Analog to Digital Converters
Dual Slope A/D Converter Successive Approximation A/D Converter Flash A/D Converter Delta – Sigma A/D Converter

9 Dual Slope Analog to Digital Converter
Also referred to as an Integrating ADC Integrator

10 Dual Slope Analog to Digital Converter
Converts in two phases (ramp up / ramp down ) Input voltage measurement not dependant on integrator components

11 Dual Slope Analog to Digital Converter
Pros Conversion result is insensitive to errors in the component values Fewer adverse affects from noise High accuracy Cons Slow Accuracy is dependant on the use of precision external components Cost

12 Successive Approximation Analog To Digital Converter
DAC = Digital to Analog Converter EOC = End of Conversion SAR = Successive Approximation Register S/H = Sample and Hold Circuit Vin = Input Voltage Vref = Reference Voltage

13 Successive Approximation Analog to Digital Converter
Uses an n-bit DAC and original analog results Performs a bit by bit comparison of VDAC and Vin If Vin > VREF / 2 MSB set to 1 otherwise 0 If Vin > VDAC Successive Bits set to 1 otherwise 0

14 Successive Approximation ADC Example
10 bit ADC Vin = 0.6 V Vref = 1V N = 2n (n = number of bits) N = 210 = 1024 Vref = 1V/ 1024 = V (resolution)

15 Successive Approximation Digital to Analog Converter
Pros Capable of high speed and reliable Medium accuracy compared to other ADC types Good tradeoff between speed and cost Capable of outputting the binary number in serial (one bit at a time) format. Cons Higher resolution successive approximation ADCs will be slower

16 Flash Analog to Digital Converter
Also called a parallel ADC 2N – 1 Comparators 2N Resistors Control Logic (encoder)

17 Flash Analog to Digital Converter
Uses the resistors to divide reference voltage into intervals Uses comparators to compare Vin and the reference voltages Encoder takes the output of comparators and uses control logic to generate binary digital output

18 Flash Analog to Digital Converter
Pros Very Fast (Fastest) Very simple operational theory Speed is only limited by gate and comparator propagation delay Cons Expensive Prone to produce glitches in the output Each additional bit of resolution requires twice the comparators and resistors

19 Sigma-Delta Analog to Digital Converter
Input over sampled, goes to integrator Integration compared with ground Iteration drives integration of error to zero Output is a stream of serial bits

20 Sigma-Delta Analog to Digital Converter
Pros High resolution No need for precision components Cons Slow due to over sampling Only good for low bandwidth

21 Comparison of ADCs Type Speed (relative) Cost (relative) Resolution
Dual Slope Slow Med 12-16 Flash Very Fast High 4-12 Successive Approx Medium – Fast Low 8-16 Sigma – Delta 12-24

23 Analog to Digital Converter Applications
Music recording Data acquisition/measurement devices thermocouples digital multimeters strain gauges Consumer Products cell phones digital cameras

24 Music Recording A to D used to convert sound pressure waves into discrete digital signal (later, D to A used to convert back to an electrical signal for a speaker) Saves a tremendous amount of space Ex. CD samples at 44.1 kHz (Nyquist frequency = kHz is higher than human ear can detect) CD recording often done with flash A to D

25 Data Acquisition Data acquisition: the process of obtaining signals from sensors that measure physical conditions Sensors give analog voltage that must be converted to work on a computer Most National Instruments DAQ’s use successive approximation A to D

26 Measurement Devices Thermocouple: a junction of dissimilar metals creates a voltage difference that is temperature dependent Digital multimeter: converts signal to a voltage and amplifies it for measurement More accurate than analog counterparts

27 Measurement Devices Strain gauge: most common type measures the change in resistance as a metal pattern is deformed

28 Consumer Products Cell phones: convert your voice into a digital signal so it can be more efficiently transmitted by compressing the signal Digital camera ccd: absorbed photons create charges that are converted into a sequence of voltages These voltages are converted to a digital signal Both often use flash A to D
