1241 - Standard for Terminology and Test Methods for Analog-to-Digital Converters

This standard identifies ADC error sources and provides test methods with which to perform the required error measurements. The information in this standard is useful both to manufacturers and to users of ADCs in that it provides a basis for evaluating and comparing existing devices, as well as providing a template for writing specifications for the procurement of new ones. In some applications, the information provided by the tests described in this standard can be used to correct ADC errors, e.g., correction for gain and offset errors. The reader should note that this standard has many similarities to IEEE Std 1057. Many of the tests and terms are nearly the same, since ADCs are a necessary part of digitizing waveform recorders.
