Comparing Power-Supply Architectures for a 12-bit ADC (.PDF Download)

Powering any data converter, such as an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) or digital-to-analog converter (DAC), requires a clean, low-noise power supply. Traditionally, engineers used low-dropout (LDO) linear regulators because this topology introduces no switching noise onto the supply voltage. However, LDOs are the least-efficient power-supply type due to their linear operation...
