High-resolution Wideband continuous-time Σ Δ modulators

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


The signal bandwidth of delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters has been greatly extended during the last few decades from a few tens of kHz bandwidth for audio to several hundred MHz to date for wireless applications. To enable a wideband and filterless RF radio front-end, high dynamic range and very high linearity of the wideband delta-sigma modulator is required as well. In this chapter the design aspects of high-resolution and wideband continuous-time delta-sigma modulators are presented, from architectural choices to implementation and circuit design examples.
