By Samantha Yoder

This publication introduces the idea that of voltage-controlled-oscillator (V.C.O.)-based analog-to-digital converters (A.D.C.s). unique clarification is given of this promising new type of excessive solution and occasional energy A.D.C.s, which use time quantization in place of conventional analog-based (i.e. voltage) A.D.C.s.

4). 4) The two-tone test results are shown in Figs. 2 for the FDC and TDC, respectively. The FDC does not experience intermodulation distortion, while the TDC does. The TDC output spectrum contains many spurs which degrade the SNR. This can be attributed to the fact that the TDC measures the period of the signal and inverts to get frequency which is a nonlinear relationship. The TDC also has a nonlinear relationship of its quantization noise with the input signal which has been ignored in previous analysis.
