hi,

i am trying to calculate the BER for an ADC, but all what i can find online is that formula, which seems not accurate at all

BER = number of error/ total no. of bits sent

i will compare between two scenarios

1-

sent-------0 0 0 0 0 0 1

received--0 0 0 0 0 0 0

2-

sent-------1 0 0 0 0 0 0

received--0 0 0 0 0 0 0

in both cases the BER is 0.2 or 20%. in example one the error is insignificant as the error is on LSB and can be easily ignored. in example two the error occurs on MSB bit which makes the whole information different. in both cases, the formula says there are two errors, without mentioning which bits are damaged.

is there another formula which can be more accurate i can use??

any help would be greatly appreciated,
