Exponential voltage was proposed as a stimulus in the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) test because it is much more similar to the theoretical one than the sinusoidal signal. For the correct execution of the ADC test, the distortion of the exponential stimulus must be assessed by evaluating the amplitude and the time coefficient of the fundamental and the superimposed exponential components that best fit the real exponential voltage. To achieve this goal, the Prony-like method is proposed in this paper. Two problems arise: the a priori evaluation of the degree of polynomial function that best fits the input samples, and the number of exponential components that have to be evaluated. To overcome these problems, two proper sub-routines are pointed out allowing operation without a priori information and in accordance with the physical model of the signal. The results of experimental tests are shown in order to assess the correctness and the accuracy of the proposed procedure.

Abstract

Exponential voltage was proposed as a stimulus in the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) test because it is much more similar to the theoretical one than the sinusoidal signal. For the correct execution of the ADC test, the distortion of the exponential stimulus must be assessed by evaluating the amplitude and the time coefficient of the fundamental and the superimposed exponential components that best fit the real exponential voltage. To achieve this goal, the Prony-like method is proposed in this paper. Two problems arise: the a priori evaluation of the degree of polynomial function that best fits the input samples, and the number of exponential components that have to be evaluated. To overcome these problems, two proper sub-routines are pointed out allowing operation without a priori information and in accordance with the physical model of the signal. The results of experimental tests are shown in order to assess the correctness and the accuracy of the proposed procedure.
