Homework Help: Fully labelled block diagram of 3-bit ‘Flash Encoding’

  1. Aug 23, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Draw a fully labelled block diagram of a 3-bit ‘Flash Encoding’ analogue to digital converter (ADC) and explain how the device converts an analogue voltage into a 3-bit binary number.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    anyone know how to do this or have any sources would be great.

    What are the different types of A-to-D Converters (ADCs)? Why would you use a Flash topology ADC versus the other topologies?

    Read the link, read your textbook, answer my question, then sketch away.
