### Definition of ENOB, SNDR for sigma-delta ADC

The general definition of each are the following: $ENOB=\frac{SNDR_{max}-1.76}{6.02}$ Where $SNDR_{max}=10 \log{\frac{S_{s,max}}{S_n}}$ And $S_{s,max}$ : maximum signal power $S_n$ : ...

### Data synchronization strategy for multiple sensors in BLE application

I am working on a battery sensitive BLE project which combines the MAX30003 ECG sensor and the LSM6DS3 accelerometer. Communication with both of these devices is made through SPI. The optimal sampling ...

### Increasing SNR through sampling and coherent integration

Let's say I have simple BPSK scheme and a receiver RF stage such that I have an ideal analogue bandpass filter with bandwidth $f_{bw}$ and then a down converter and finally a sampler. I am trying ...

### Quantization error in ADCs and sampling speed

Assertion: The noise due to quantization error for an ideal 12-bit ADC gives a signal to noise ratio of 74dB, assuming a signal with full dynamic range at the input. Suppose I was using an ideal ADC ...

### Does SNR improve at higher sampling rates for a low pass filtered signal?

Let's say we want to extract 1Hz signal from a noisy signal by using a LPF. And assume we have sampled it with 100Hz sampling rate. If we would have sampled it with 1kHz sampling rate and use the ...

### Sampling data at 5MHz with 50Mhz clock in Verilog

I'm trying to make a controller for the MAX31855 thermocouple IC. My FPGA works at 50MHz and this IC works at 5MHz, so I'm using a frequency divider to get the 5MHz clock signal. Now the IC is ...

### ADC driver design for oversampling

I'm interested to sample an AC signal in the range of 5kHz - 20KHz with the STM32L432KC microcontroller. This microcontroller has a hardware oversampling feature, i.e it can take the average of ...

### Static error in analog-to-digital conversion

I'm testing ADC and quantization noise on a microcontroller (dsPIC33EP64GS506), but I've realized that I have a static error in a digital signal. I measure a DC voltage on a voltage divider and my ...

### Fast Fourier Transformation of incomplete signals

I would like to perform a FFT on a signal with equally sampled values of which some are missing. (Actually, they are not even missing, but simply erroneous, so I can't use them, but I can detect when ...

### Calculating FFT for only part of full frequency range?

Earlier I asked a question here about performing FFT at lower frequencies but still at high sample frequencies. I was under the impression that the FFT was inherently calculated at every frequency 0->(...

### ADC undersampling AND oversampling

I need to accurately measure a narrow band signal (of about 200Hz) centered in a part of spectrum that is many times its band (at about 20kHz). I have only a 12 bit ADC that is relatively fast (5 MSPS)...

### Is using a high sample rate on an oscilloscope ever a bad thing?

A while back i was gathering some ECG data for a colleague at a reasonably high sample rate (around 20kHz - 100Hz is enough for ECG). She came back to me and asked me to regather the data at a lower ...

### Calculating bits/sample from a digital MEMS microphone

I'm thinking of using a digital MEMS microphone in a project - looks like it would save on some parts: no need for an amplifier and ADC. The output from the microphone is PDM and I'd need to convert ...

### Digital Low-Pass Filter When Oversampling Audio

The human ear can hear sounds up to ~ 20KHz. Some ADC's oversample. For example, to capture frequencies up to 20KHz, an ADC converter might sample at 160KHz. The steps are: 1. Filter the audio with an ...

### Sampling: how to determine a “good” sampling rate based on a given filter

I assume that the sampling rate is w_s = 2w_max if we have an ideal low-pass filter that nulls frequencies whose absolute value is higher than that of w_max. Therefore, that the only reason for ...
