Abstract

In this letter a histogram-based BIST (Built-In Self-Test) approach for deriving the main characteristic parameters of an ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) such as offset, gain and non-linearities is proposed. The BIST uses a ramp signal as an input signal and two counters as a response analyzer to calculate the derived static parameters. Experimental results show that the proposed method reduces the hardware overhead and testing time while detecting any static faults in an ADC.
