The input signal s(t) moves between low peak amplitude AL to high peak amplitude AH . This is sometimes known as the "quantum noise limit" of systems in those fields. Pierce, and Claude E. For example, a 16-bit ADC has a maximum signal-to-noise ratio of 6.02 Ã— 16 = 96.3dB.

the peak-to-peak range of the input sample values is subdivided into a finite set of decision levels or decision thresholds that are aligned with the risers of the staircase, and 2. John Wiley & Sons. On the other hand, if interval size is increased using lesser number of quantization levels, approximation is poor. doi:10.1109/MCOM.1977.1089500 ^ Rabbani, Majid; Joshi, Rajan L.; Jones, Paul W.

Quantization noise is a model of quantization error introduced by quantization in the analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) in telecommunication systems and signal processing. For some applications, having a zero output signal representation or supporting low output entropy may be a necessity. Adapted from Franz, David (2004).

This example shows the original analog signal (green), the quantized signal (black dots), the signal reconstructed from the quantized signal (yellow) and the difference between the original signal and the reconstructed In general, a mid-riser or mid-tread quantizer may not actually be a uniform quantizer â€“ i.e., the size of the quantizer's classification intervals may not all be the same, or the Quantization noise power can be derived from N = ( δ v ) 2 12 W {\displaystyle \mathrm {N} ={\frac {(\delta \mathrm {v} )^{2}}{12}}\mathrm {W} \,\!} where δ v {\displaystyle \delta This two-stage decomposition applies equally well to vector as well as scalar quantizers.

ISBN 978-1-4411-5607-5. Quantization error models[edit] In the typical case, the original signal is much larger than one least significant bit (LSB). In actuality, the quantization error (for quantizers defined as described here) is deterministically related to the signal rather than being independent of it.[8] Thus, periodic signals can create periodic quantization noise. For the mean-square error distortion criterion, it can be easily shown that the optimal set of reconstruction values { y k ∗ } k = 1 M {\displaystyle \{y_{k}^{*}\}_{k=1}^{M}} is given

For these conditions, the sample values at the Quantizer output can oscillate between two adjacent quantization levels, causing an undesired sinusoidal type tone of frequency (0.5fs) at the output of the With Δ = 1 {\displaystyle \Delta =1} or with Δ {\displaystyle \Delta } equal to any other integer value, this quantizer has real-valued inputs and integer-valued outputs, although this property is However, it must be used with care: this derivation is only for a uniform quantizer applied to a uniform source.

However, for a source that does not have a uniform distribution, the minimum-distortion quantizer may not be a uniform quantizer. II: Appl.

At lower amplitudes the quantization error becomes dependent on the input signal, resulting in distortion. Gray, Vector Quantization and Signal Compression, Springer, ISBN 978-0-7923-9181-4, 1991. ^ Hodgson, Jay (2010). Your cache administrator is webmaster. When the input signal is a full-amplitude sine wave the distribution of the signal is no longer uniform, and the corresponding equation is instead S Q N R ≈ 1.761 +

Note that mid-riser uniform quantizers do not have a zero output value â€“ their minimum output magnitude is half the step size. In some designs, rather than optimizing for a particular number of classification regions M {\displaystyle M} , the quantizer design problem may include optimization of the value of M {\displaystyle M} Sampling converts a voltage signal (function of time) into a discrete-time signal (sequence of real numbers). Entropy coding techniques can be applied to communicate the quantization indices from a source encoder that performs the classification stage to a decoder that performs the reconstruction stage.

For low-resolution ADCs, low-level signals in high-resolution ADCs, and for simple waveforms the quantization noise is not uniformly distributed, making this model inaccurate.[17] In these cases the quantization noise distribution is So discrete-valued signals are only an approximation of the continuous-valued discrete-time signal, which is itself only an approximation of the original continuous-valued continuous-time signal. The dead zone can sometimes serve the same purpose as a noise gate or squelch function. doi:10.1109/TIT.1968.1054193 ^ a b c d e f g h Robert M.

However, for a source that does not have a uniform distribution, the minimum-distortion quantizer may not be a uniform quantizer. Consider a memory less quantizer that is both uniform and symmetric. This decomposition is useful for the design and analysis of quantization behavior, and it illustrates how the quantized data can be communicated over a communication channel â€“ a source encoder can Rounding example[edit] As an example, rounding a real number x {\displaystyle x} to the nearest integer value forms a very basic type of quantizer â€“ a uniform one.
