Unscrambling Interleaved ADCs

Speaker: Nevena Rakuljic
Affiliation: Analog Devices

Abstract: Interleaving offers a step-function breakthrough in A/D sample rate. It breaks an increasingly nasty power tradeoff, and it neatly sidesteps the metastability speed limit. But it comes at a price. Interleaving introduces a host of new problems that cannot be solved in the analog domain. Modern ADC design has therefore evolved into a combination of technologies which go beyond mere “digital assist” to something more like “digital life support”.  This presentation will review the challenges of interleaving and how technology is adapting to the new demands. We hope this will also serve as a glimpse into the future of the analog mixed-signal designer.
