Abstract : A real time data rate quantizer and analog-to-digital converter system employs an electron beam which is deflected by an analog input waveform. The deflected electron beam strikes a mosaic target in which electron beam sensitive elements detect and quantize the signal. The outputs of the detectors feed an encoder resulting in a binary digital output waveform. (Author)
