GaGe White Paper: ENOB: The Best Digitizer Performance Metric 

While the nominal vertical resolution of a high-speed waveform digitizer (specified in bits) is often promoted, its true performance is provided by its measured Dynamic Parameters and in particular by its Effective Number of Bits (ENOB). This article describes measurement of the Dynamic Parameters and presents measurements for a leading-edge GaGe 12-bit Digitizer.
