Introduction So, we want to break down our continuous-time sigma-delta feedback into two paths: A low-precision tight loop that delivers the first sample to the quantizer A higher-precision loop that goes through a clock delay to minimize “metastability” (indecision)

The continuous-time sigma-delta (CTSD) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is a class of sigma-delta analog-to-digital converters that utilize a continuous-time noise-shaping filter (NSF | H(s)). In this post, I analyze a few noise-shaping filter (NSF) architectures that affect highly linear CTSD ADC’s.
However, here’s how I compute SNR/SNDR from an FFT using Cadence Ocean/Skill.
In response to: How can I deal with 3rd HD in a 2nd SigmaDelta Modulator It’s possible that the OTA is limiting you. Doing a matlab model of the sigma-delta and running it should tell you whether it is a circuit problem or a system-level problem. My hunch is that it’s a system-level problem: the […]
