DSP Quantisation

1. An analogue signal is to be sampled from a transducer with an output voltage range of 0 to 10 volts and operating on a 12-volt power supply. The designer has available two analogue to digital converters (ADC): a 3 bit ADC and a 4 bit ADC. For each converter: (a) Supply the quantisation levels (including zero) that are avai
