This article presents the optimization process for a new architecture of digital-enhanced radio frequency receiver. This receiver is based on combining charge sampling filters and hybrid filter banks techniques. We describe the structure optimization based on a compromise between performance and implementation constraints. We then show the performances(More)
High-pass /spl Delta//spl Sigma/ modulator has the advantage of immunity from the low frequency noise and is thus very effective in the parallel architectures. In this paper, we present the behavioral modelling and simulation of /spl Delta//spl Sigma/ modulators in VHDL-AMS, and in particular of the high-pass modulator. A set of models in VHDL-AMS suitable(More)
In previous work, a non-uniform sampling (NUS) technique to control analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) in a multistandard radio receiver was proposed. In this context of wide band radio signals, the NUS-based ADC offers the advantages of relaxing antialiasing filter (AAF) constraints, decreasing the sampling frequency average and reducing ADC dynamic power(More)
| In this paper, the design procedure for a third-order continuous-time modulator with RZ feedback is described. The circuit is realized using continuous-time current-mode integrators and DACs with switched-current sources. A design method to nd the minimum biasing current required to achieve the desired dynamic range is presented. With a sampling frequency(More)
This paper deals with the problem of clock skew errors in time-interleaved analog-to-digital converters. Deterministic sample-time errors between time-interleaved channels generate nonlinear distortion and degrade SFDR. We propose a fully digital calibration method that uses, on the one hand, adaptive FIR filters to reconstruct a correctly sampled signal(More)
| In this paper, a design method for continuous-time mod-ulators with RZ feedback pulse is proposed. This method is used to design a second-order continuous-time modulator. The circuit is realized using continuous-time current-mode in-tegrators and switched-current sources DAC. The eeect of the integrator thermal noise and non-ideal RZ feedback pulse on the(More)
