Converter testing is a complex process. Test specifications are application dependent and in most cases require sophisticated stimulus generation and, response analysis equipment. The processing of sampled data to generate specification measurements also requires complex DSP algorithms. Furthermore, test complexity increases with speed, resolution and technology advances. This chapter summaries the key test specifications, conventional methods of verifying these specifications and potential built in self test solutions.
