Design of Electronic Devices with Adjustable Parameters in LABVIEW

Circuits and Systems for Receiving, Transmitting and Signal Processing

This paper shows the advantages of using graphical programming in LabVIEW to design a model of an electronic device with adjustable parameters. The model of the digital gain error calibration and correction system for a 12-bit 200-Ms/s pipelined ADC has been constructed. The results of computer simulation in LabWIEV are presented. As shown, digital error correction can reduce op-amp requirements while maintaining the same SNDR and SFDR ratios. For example, the simulation has shown that operational amplifiers with a DC gain of 48 dB instead of 68 dB can be used in a pipelined ADC with digital correction. This approach can reduce ADC power twofold.
