Are quantization steps equal in size & evenly distributed in the dynamic range? 2018-08-05 13:45:04 Hello.I’ve been doing some reading about the Sampling Theorem, and I find it all fascinating. I think I understand it enough now to rid myself of the typical DSP myths. However, I still have questions about some details.For instance, I want to be able to relate the 24 and 16 bit dynamic range to their respective quantization step size and distribution.When I’m working with my DAW, can I think of the quantization steps as having the same size and being evenly distributed throughout the entire dynamic range? Or do they have uneven sizes/distribution?I understand there’s Uniform Quantization (Mid-rise and mid-tread) and Non-Uniform Quantization. So which type do we use in our typical ADCs? I’m hoping it’s the former…--- Would it be accurate to say that in a 16-bit quantizer, each bit is represented by 2048 uniform quantization steps? Would each of the 16 bits have 6.02 dB of range represented by 2048 steps?(my reasoning is that there are 65,563 steps in a 16 bit quantizer. Then I must divide them by 2 because one half are to represent positive values of a signal and the other for negative values, so I simply divide the 32,768 actual steps by 16 to get the number of quantization steps per bit? Did I get this right?) --- Could I say that in a 16 bit signal, the LSB is represented by quantization steps 1 through 2,048 and its MSB by steps 30,721 through 32,768?I’m hoping it’s not, but something tells me things are a bit more complicated than that?Thank you for any comments.
