strange Signal at ADC input

Hello all,


I see a strange signal at ADC input which might cause the issue I am faced with.

I have attached the osci picture.

This signal looks like a sawtooth wave.

When I change the paramter SMPLTS then the area marked on the picture changes accordingly.

So I assume that when the ADC does "sample" the signal is forced to input level.

When the ADC does "hold" for internal sampling the signal follows a sawtooth wave.

I do not see this signal analysing the sample values. However the sampled signal does not match what I expect. Also I have

issue processing it.


The ADC input in connected with 1nF capacitor to ground.

Does anybody has n idea why this signal is so strange? What do I need to do here?


Thanks for your help
