Overview:
This webcast will explore the various approaches a designer can take when implementing several ADC channels in one system. You’ll learn the benefits and drawbacks to using multi-channel ADCs as opposed to several single channel ADCs. Pam discusses issues such as sharing resources, power consumption and dissipation, matching, and cross-channel interference. By understanding these tradeoffs the user can make informed decisions about how to partition their system to optimize the performance, power, and/or board space.
Topics to be covered in this presentation will include but are not be limited to:

  • Crosstalk 
  • Power consumption & dissipation issues  
  • Gain and offset matching across multiple channels 
  • Clocking concerns for simultaneous and interleaved sampling 
  • Board Layout 

Who should attend?

Analog design engineers that are involved in design or system level support.
