  • Publication number: 20210021278
    Abstract: Systems and methods relating to analog-to-digital converters. A delay block receives an input signal at the same time as a coarse ADC (CADC) block. The CADC block produces a multi-bit output and this output is applied to a signal processing block. The delay block delays the input signal from being applied to the signal processing block until the output of the CADC block has been applied/configures the signal processing block. The signal processing block may be a signal shifter, the output of which is ultimately applied to a fine ADC (FADC) block. In an alternative, the signal processing block may be the FADC block. Regardless of the configuration, the output of the CADC is delayed until the output of the FADC block is available. The outputs of the CADC and the FADC blocks are then simultaneously applied to an encoder that produces the overall system output.
