The paper deals with the search of ways for speeding up and accuracy increase of conversion of modern analog-to-digital converters. The main shortcomings interfering a solution of this task including the field of optoelectronic analog-to-digital converters are provided. The proposed solution gives the chance to increase high-speed performance of analog-to-digital converters on the basis of holographic interferometry principles without reducing their accuracy of conversion. The optical scheme of interferential and holographic method of analog-to-digital conversion and results of its mathematical modeling are provided. Some recommendations about hardware implementation of this analog data digitizer are formulated. The physical principles and approaches to a choice of the converter structural elements are explained. An example of forming the functional scheme of a decoder for a luminous flux intensity in terms of registration of analog-to-digital converter is reviewed. The practical importance of the provided method consists in possibility of creation of analog-to-digital converters with high-speed performance about 600 MHz and with an accuracy of conversion up to 12 bits.

Keywords: analog-to-digital conversion, software defined radio system, holographic interference, coder
