Good, do you add the noise in before or after the A/D [if there
Not wanting to spend the next 6 weeks looking at theory, I was
conjecturing - let's say you have some high-frequency non-random
interference getting into your system, and being aliased into
the A/D. Even though aliased, it will still have its same spectrum
folded around a few times, but still "coherent" [???????].
So, if you add the "masking" noise to the A/D output [ie, via s.w.
postprocessing] rather than prior to the A/D input, it should
work as well. Yes/no/maybe????
