It is now possible to digitise microwave signals using 8 bit ADCs and sampling frequencies in excess of 1 GHz. This opens up new opportunities for the measurement and analysis of these broadband signals, however an 8 bit ADC has a very limited dynamic range. This paper discusses Additive Dither and Frequency Shift Dither techniques which can be used to extend the dynamic range of the ADC and it describes how this can be implemented in hardware.
