Critical Techniques for High Speed A/D Converters in Real-Time Systems

Markets for high-speed are significant in size and many are growing rapidly. New markets emerge regularly based on technology advances, lower costs, and the general trend of replacing older mechanical and systems with () systems. Commercial users of high-speed A/Ds include mobile communication systems, airline radar systems, air traffic control towers, ship communications, and wireless networks for home, office and public facilities.

Now in its 4th Edition, this handbook focuses primarily on A/D converters with sampling rates higher than 100 MHz. Sampling techniques are reviewed, as well as and high-speed . The latest Pentek high-speed A/D products and applications based on such products are also presented.
