The quality of the power supply should be a key consideration in high-speed A/D converter IC applications. The noise contribution of the supply directly impacts the dynamic performance achieved by the converter stage. This presentation will provide an in-depth look inside the ADC’s supply pins, analyze the impact of supply ripple on converter performance, define power supply-related specifications, and provide layout and application guidelines for achieving optimum supply voltages.

Topics covered in this webinar include:
– A look inside an ADC’s power supply pins
– Typical PSRR analysis and calculations
– Bench testing an ADC’s PSRR
– Power supply noise analysis techniques
– Power supply design guidelines and suggestions

Who should attend this webinar:
Engineers who are designing with high-speed A/D converter ICs, or those who specify power supplies for converter applications.
