Ah good, I see someone else is familiar with the PIC A/D internals.
Based upon the published info, I had expected to see a fairly good
BW in the A/D, something somewhat commensurate with
F = 1/(2*pi*7K*51pF) = 440 khz
However, I was surprised to measure only about 120 khz BW [external
influences being taken into account] for the 'C76. And the 'F876,
which has a 120 pF sampling cap, registered only about 60 khz BW.
In addition, the A/D gain internally falls off at about -60 dB/decade,
which makes a really nice anti-aliasing filter when you are doing ETS
at 1 mhz, but I was hoping for a little more BW.
Interesting that the measured values are so far off the 1st order
approximation. Got any clue as to why?
