How the voltage reference affects ADC performance, Part 1

By Bonnie Baker, Senior Applications Engineer, and Miro Oljaca, Senior Applications Engineer  from Texas Instrument.

Introduction

When designing a mixed-signal system, many designers have a tendency to examine and optimize each component separately. This myopic approach can go only so far if the goal is to have a working design at the end of the day. Given the array of different components in a system, designers must have a complete understanding of not only the individual components but also their impact on the overall system performance. When a design has an analog- to-digital converter (ADC), it is critical to understand how this device interacts with the voltage reference and voltage- reference buffer.
