Abstract—Two of the parameters that are determined when testing an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) are the gain and offset errors. One of the ways to define these two parameters is called “independently based.” In this paper, we derive the precision of the gain and offset errors estimated with the histogram test method affected by additive noise.
