Allen, 2000 MISMATCH ANALYSIS METHODS General Method Suppose that two performances, p 1 and p 2 , can be written can be written as p 1 = f 1 ( x 1 , y 1 , z 1 ,...) and p 2 = f 2 ( x 2 , y 2 , z 2 ,...) Ideally, y 1 should be equal to y 2 , but in practice their difference could be expressed as Error = e ( p 1 , p 2 ) = f( x 1 , y 1 , z 1 ,..., x 2 , y 2 , z 2 ,...) Now assume that x 1 , y 1 , z 1 ,... and x 2 , y 2 , z 2 ,...) can be expressed in terms of their difference and average values. We illustrate only for x 1 and x 2 , ∆ x = x 1- x 2 and x = x 1 + x 2 2 We can solve for x 1 and x 2 in terms of ∆ x and x as follows, x 1 = x + 0.5 ∆ x and x 2 = x- 0.5 ∆ x Now the error can be express as e ( p 1 , p 2 ) = f( x +0.5 ∆ x , x-0.5 ∆ x ) This expressing can generally be simplified by assuming that ∆ x << x and using the following approximations, 1 1- ε ≈ 1+ ε or 1 1+ ε ≈ 1- ε and neglecting higher power values of ε , i.e. ε 2 Device Mismatch in Diff.
