Hall of fame: Thermal FOM


This is the hall of fame for achievements related to the “Thermal FOM” defined as:

F_{B1} = \dfrac{P}{{2}^{2ENOB}\times f_{s}}

It will list current and previous world record holders according to my ADC survey. Current state-of-the-art is found at the top of each list, and there are separate listings for Nyquist and delta-sigma (DSM) ADCs. For more about different figures of merit, check out the “Generic FOM classes” page. An overview of current state-of-the-art for more than one type of FOM is found on the FOM-o-meter page.
