Uncertainty in the nose-to-nose sampler calibration method due to assertion that the generator and receiver functions are identical

Abstract

The nose-to-nose (ntn) sampler calibration method can only be used for particular sampler structures and, for these structures, provides a technique for determining the sampler's transfer function and impulse response. However, the ntn method is based on the assertion that the sampler behaves the same when it is acting as a receiver or as a pulse generator and, therefore, yields generator and receiver functions that are identical. The uncertainties in the estimate of this common receiver/generator function are determined.
