In this chapter, the performance of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) will be discussed. The discussion will concentrate on the impact of ADCs on the performance of receivers; therefore, the discussion will be emphasized from a system point of view. The important parameters of the ADC related to receiver performance are number of bits, number of effective bits, maximum sampling frequency, and input bandwidth.
