%X It is explained, in introduction of this paper, why the description of the output signal at an A/D converter in the form that is presented in such respected textbooks as: a one written by Prandoni and Vetterli, and another one by van de Plassche is appropriate and correct. Unlike all others, especially those using in it the so-called comb of Dirac deltas. The latter ones do not lead to getting a correct formula for the spectrum of the output waveform of an A/D converter, or they yield no formula at all. Using the description of the A/D output signal in form of a step function (as in the textbooks mentioned above), a new, correct formula for calculating the spectrum of the sampled signal is derived in this paper. It is a revised version of the formula currently used in the literature, that is of the so-called Discrete-Time Fourier Transform (DTFT), and it is a product of this DTFT and a certain correction factor. Finally, some literature items are referred to in which the designers of integrated circuits (containing A/D converters) point out discrepancies that arise in designs when the multiplying factor mentioned above is not taken into account.
