Abstract

Amplitude resolution specifies the vertical precision of the digitizer. The quantization of a signal in a digitizer is controlled by its analog to digital converter or ADC. The resolution of the ADC is the number of bits it uses to digitize the input samples. The amplitude resolution specification is usually expressed as a number of bits; for instance, 8-bits or 16-bits.
