Differential Diplexer Drives Sampling ADCs (.PDF Download)

Direct-sampling pipeline analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) produce a large collection of mixing products, much like passive RF/microwave mixers. In high-speed ADCs, these mixing products are sum-and-difference image signal components that extend to microwave frequencies. They are the result of transient signal events—glitches that result from the abrupt connection of sample capacitors when the ADC resumes tracking...
