Why ENOB Matters

September 27, 2010 11:10 am | by Chris Eriksen, Rohde & Schwarz | Comments

There are two kinds of oscilloscope users: Those who know why ENOB matters and those who should. Before we get into the meaning and importance of ENOB (Effective Number of Bits), we should spend a few words on "NOB" itself. One important spec of any Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) is its resolution - or the number of bits used to describe the analog signal values.
