The performances of A/D converters are usually characterized in their granular region, by adopting amplitude limited sine-wave testing signals. However, some applications, like digital telecommunication systems, often require the conversion of signals which noticeably differ from sine-waves and may introduce ADC overloading phenomena. In this paper, the A/D conversion of Gaussian distributed signal is investigated, both for PCM and Sigma-Delta converters. Then, the effects of quantization noisedoi:10.1109/imtc.2002.1007104 fatcat:zhfzg6lt55g4xdochau4ezgfgq
