Image Number 11 for United States Patent #6369738.
A time domain data converter with output frequency domain conversion. A data conversion circuit is operable to receive a signal in the time domain and provide an output in the frequency domain. It includes a data converter for converting data from an analog format to a digital format in the time domain. It also includes a processor for processing the data in the digital format output from the data converter through a time domain/frequency domain transform to provide data in the digital format in the frequency domain. The output of the frequency domain operation or the time domain operation can be provided for output in response to the generation of a data ready signal.
