A comprehensive overview of Sigma-Delta Analog-to-Digital
Converters (ADCs) and a practical guide to their design in
nano-scale CMOS for optimal performance.
This book presents a systematic and comprehensive compilation of
sigma-delta converter operating principles, the new advances in
architectures and circuits, design methodologies and practical
considerations - going from system-level specifications to silicon
integration, packaging and measurements, with emphasis on nanometer
CMOS implementation. The book emphasizes practical design issues -
from high-level behavioural modelling in MATLAB/SIMULINK, to
circuit-level implementation in Cadence Design FrameWork II. As
well as being a comprehensive reference to the theory, the book is
also unique in that it gives special importance on practical
issues, giving a detailed description of the different steps that
constitute the whole design flow of sigma-delta ADCs.
The book begins with an introductory survey of sigma-delta
modulators, their fundamentals architectures and synthesis methods
covered in Chapter 1. In Chapter 2, the effect of main circuit
error mechanisms is analysed, providing the necessary understanding
of the main practical issues affecting the performance of
sigma-delta modulators. The knowledge derived from the first two
chapters is presented in the book as an essential part of the
systematic top-down/bottom-up synthesis methodology of sigma-delta
modulators described in Chapter 3, where a time-domain behavioural
simulator named SIMSIDES is described and applied to the high-level
design and verification of sigma-delta ADCs. Chapter 4 moves
farther down from system-level to the circuit and physical level,
providing a number of design recommendations and practical recipes
to complete the design flow of sigma-delta modulators. To conclude
the book, Chapter 5 gives an overview of the state-of-the-art
sigma-delta ADCs, which are exhaustively analysed in order to
extract practical design guidelines and to identify the incoming
trends, design challenges as well as practical solutions proposed
by cutting-edge designs.Offers a complete survey of sigma-delta
modulator architectures from fundamentals to state-of-the art
topologies, considering both switched-capacitor and continuous-time
circuit implementationsGives a systematic analysis and practical
design guide of sigma-delta modulators, from a top-down/bottom-up
perspective, including mathematical models and analytical
procedures, behavioural modeling in MATLAB/SIMULINK, macromodeling,
and circuit-level implementation in Cadence Design FrameWork II,
chip prototyping, and experimental characterization.Systematic
