Linearity Issues • INL is often not adequate for predicting the linearity performance of a data converter • Distortion (or lack thereof) is of major concern in many applications • Distortion is generally characterized in terms of the harmonics that may appear in a waveform .• • • Review from last lecture .•

Spectral Analysis Nonlinear System (weakly) X IN (t) X OUT (t) Often the system of interest is ideally linear but practically it is weakly nonlinear. Often the input is nearly periodic and often sinusoidal and in latter case desired output is also sinusoidal Weak nonlinearity will cause distortion of signal as is propagated through the system Spectral analysis often used to characterize effects of the weak nonlinearity
