1. What is the nyquist frequency for a bandwidth of span “X”?
a) 0
b) X
c) 2X
d) 3X
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: The nyquist frequency for a bandwidth of span “X” is 2X. The nyquist frequency of any signal that is band limited is defined as twice the bandwidth of the channel. So for a bandwidth span of “X”, the nyquist frequency will be 2X.

a) 6 volt
b) 1 volt
c) 4 volt
d) 2 volt
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Given:
Full scale voltage range=16 volt
Resolution of analog to digital converter=2 bits
Number of intervals=2(resolution of analog to digital converter in bits)
Number of intervals => 22=4
Resolution=Full scale voltage range/ number of intervals
LSB voltage=resolution
LSB voltage=>16/4=4 volts.

3. What is the full scale voltage range of a analog to digital converter if the LSB voltage is 4 volt and the resolution of analog to digital converter in bits 3?
a) 36 volt
b) 31 volt
c) 43 volt
d) 32 volt
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: Given:
LSB voltage = 4 volt
Resolution of analog to digital converter=3 bits
Number of intervals=2(resolution of analog to digital converter in bits)
Number of intervals => 23=8
Resolution=Full scale voltage range/number of intervals
LSB voltage=resolution
Full scale voltage range=Resolution*number of intervals
Full scale voltage range=4*8
Full scale voltage range=32 V

4. What is the resolution of a analog to digital converter if the full scale voltage range is 16 volt and the resolution of analog to digital converter in bits 2?
a) 6 volt
b) 1 volt
c) 4 volt
d) 2 volt
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Given:
Full scale voltage range=16 volt
Resolution of analog to digital converter=2 bits
Number of intervals=2(resolution of analog to digital converter in bits)
Number of intervals => 22=4
Resolution=Full scale voltage range/number of intervals
Resolution=>16/4=4 volts.

5. Nyquist rate is the maximum rate at which a signal of finite bandwidth needs to be sampled in order to retrieve all its information.
a) True
b) False
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Nyquist rate is the not maximum rate at which a signal of finite bandwidth needs to be sampled in order to retrieve all its information. It is the minimum rate at which the signal of finite bandwidth needs to be sampled to get all its information.

6. What is the LSB voltage of a analog to digital converter if the full scale voltage range is 8 volt and the resolution of analog to digital converter in bits 2?

View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: Given:
Full scale voltage range=8 volt
Resolution of analog to digital converter=2 bits
Number of intervals=2(resolution of analog to digital converter in bits)
Number of intervals => 22=4
Resolution=Full scale voltage range/ number of intervals
LSB voltage=resolution
LSB voltage=>8/4=2 volts.

7. How many resistors are required to make an n-bit Analog-to-digital converter using string resistor ladder network?
a) 2n resistors
b) 2n resistors
c) 3n resistors
d) 3n resistors
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: 2n resistors are required to make an n-bit Analog-to-digital converter using string resistor ladder network. The number of resistors increases exponentially, which is a major disadvantage of this network.

8. Which of the integrated circuit mentioned below is the name of an Analog to digital converter?
a) BC541
b) ADS1115
c) TIP122
d) TIP135
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: ADS1115 the name of an Analog to digital converter. It is a 16 bit integrated circuit and is designed by the Texas Instrument. It supports I2C communication protocol. It also has an oscillator inside it.
