The Philosophy of PCM

B.M. Oliver, J.R. Pierce, C.E. Shannon
1948 Proceedings of the IRE  
INTRODUCTION You don't have to deal with ADCs or DACs for long before running across this often quoted formula for the theoretical signal-tonoise ratio (SNR) of a converter.  ...  Remember that this formula represents the theoretical performance of a perfect N-bit ADC. You can compare the actual ADC SNR with the theoretical SNR and get an idea of how the ADC stacks up.  ...  Also for communications applications, the AD9446 16-bit, 100 MSPS ADC is optimized for high SNR (84 dB), dissipates 2.8 W, and is also designed on a BiCMOS process.  ...

Clock aligner based on delay locked loop with double edge synchronization

Mile Stojčev, Goran Jovanović
2008 Microelectronics and reliability  
This paper describes a delay locked loop with double edge synchronization for use in a clock alignment process.  ...  In CMOS multistage clock buffer design, the duty-cycle of clock is liable to be changed when the clock passes through several buffer stages.  ...  A conventional solution is to attach duty-cycle correction circuits to all output drivers with the price of added area, increased jitter, and further phase mismatch due to enlarged path [12] .  ...
