Impulse Invariant Transform

Introduction The impulse invariant transform (IIT) is a method of taking a continuous-time system H(s) and converting it to a discrete-time system. There are multiple ways of doing this, but the IIT does so with the constraint that the impulse response of the discrete-time system is a sampled version of the impulse response of the […]

The Viterbi Sigma-Delta (at CircuitSage)

I’ve posted a guest article at Circuit Sage, detailing the derivation of a “Viterbi” over-sampling data converter. I’m quite proud of this one. Go over and check it out.movie Mechanic: Resurrection 2016 streaming FYI: this is also the reason I didn’t post directly to this site this week. I try to do a post per […]

Unity STF | A sigma-delta linearization method

In a previous post, I discussed the trade-offs in linearity of several continuous-time sigma-delta schemes. In this post, I will describe a method that linearizes the sigma-delta noise-shaping filter (NSF). That is, the scheme presented in this article greatly suppresses the linearity requirements on the noise-shaping filter. This method applies to both discrete-time and continuous-time […]
