An error masking technique has been developed which allows the hardware complexity of Multi stAge noise SHaping (MASH) Digital Delta-Sigma Modulators (DDSMs) to be reduced without sacrificing performance. This technique has already been applied to the conventional MASH 1-1-1 DDSM and it has been shown that 20% hardware savings can be achieved compared to… CONTINUE READING
