To obtain insight into the design criteria for converters it is important to arrive at a unanimous definition of specifications. These specifications must include the application of converters in conversion systems (see references [14, 15]). Dynamic specifications of converters are needed to obtain insight in the applicability of a certain converter in a digital signal processing system: for example, digital audio or digital video. In a conversion system the complete conversion from analog into digital or digital into analog information is performed. Such systems include input or output amplification and anti-alias filtering.
