Unformatted text preview: des we can represent depends on the number of bits we use. Values must be rounded to nearest number… in the 1bit case, “0” or “1”

.66 .33 0 With 2 bits, we can represent 4 values (0, .33, .66, 1). We still must round, but rounding error is less, and curve is more closely approximated. A/D and D/A converters
