Abstract
The impact of the recently demonstrated time-stretch preprocessing on the performance of Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) is reported. We calculate the influence of time-stretch on the quantization noise, thermal noise and shot noise of Nyquist type ADC. We also study the effect of time-stretch on the quantization noise of (Sigma) -(Delta) converters. The results suggest that if ideal time stretching can be achieved, the resolution is increased by 1.5 and 2.5 bits for every octave of time-stretch in a first and second order modulator, respectively.
