This chapter first describes logic functions and illustrates how false signals are formed due to timing errors. Basic logic circuits are described (NMOS, PMOS, CMOS) together with propagation delays and power dissipation. The application of logic circuitry in analog-to-digital converters is illustrated, with a detailed discussion of conversion flaws (channel profile, integral and differential non-linearity, rate dependence). Different types of analog-to-digital converters are described (flash, successive approximation, Wilkinson, and pipelined ADCs) with their strengths and shortcomings. The chapter closes with a brief discussion of sampling, the Nyquist criterion, and digital signal processing.

Keywords:   logic functions, propagation delay, logic power dissipation, analog-to-digital converters, channel profile, integral non-linearity, differential non-linearity, rate dependence, digital signal processing, Nyquist criterion
