Understanding AC behaviors of high-speed ADCs

A growing number of electronic products in consumer, medical, automotive, and even industrial sectors make use of high-speed signal technologies for data and voice communication, audio, and imaging. Though these application categories process signals with different bandwidths and use correspondingly different converter architectures, they share certain characteristics when it comes to comparing candidate ADCs (analog-to-digital converters) and evaluating the performance of specific implementations. In particular, designers working in these disparate application categories are concerned with a number of common converter AC-performance characteristics that can set their systems' performance limits.
