14.5*) The SNR due to quantization can be calculated as follows. For an N-bit ADC, with a voltage range of E, there are $$2^N$$ quantization levels, and so the maximum noise level is $$E/2^N$$. The maximum signl is $$E$$, so the SNR is $$(1/2^N)^2$$. The extra square is because of converting from voltage to power. For N = 8, this gives an SNR of about -48 dB For N = 16, this gives an SNR of about -96 dB *Late
