This tool converts** Mega Samples per second to Megabit per second**. It can also be used for the following conversions:

- GSPS to GBit/s
- kSPS to kbit/s
- SPS to bit/s

**Background**

The sampling rate of Analog-to-Digital Converter is expressed as

**GSPS**– Gigasamples per second**MSPS**– Megasamples per second**kSPS**– Kilosamples per second**SPS**– Samples per second

The sampling rate converter can be used to find this number.

Each Sample consists of a fixed number of bits. This fixed number can be 12, 14, 24, etc.

This tool determines the throughput required to sustain this data output from the ADC both in Mbit/s and in MByte/s.

**Example Calculation**

If an analog waveform is sampled at 100 MS/s with a 12-bit ADC, the throughput required to sustain this rate is 1200 Mbit/s or 150 Megabyte/s.

- ADC resolution calculator: Use this tool to find the minimum voltage that can be measured by an ADC. The greater the number of bits the higher the voltage resolution
- ADC digital output: This tool gives the bit (1 and 0) equivalent of an analog input for an n-bit ADC
- ADC Sampling Rate: How is the sampling rate calculated from timing parameters?
- As an exercise use the Arduino sampling rate to figure out how fast the samples should be collected to ensure no data loss
