Sigma-Delta ADCs and DACs

  title={Sigma-Delta ADCs and DACs},
    Within the last several years, the sigmadelta architecture has become more and more popular for realizing high-resolutionADCs in mixed-signal VLSI processes. Until recently, however, the process technology needed to make these devices commercially viable has not been available. Now that 1 micron and smaller CMOS geometries are manufactureable, sigma-delta converters will become even more prolific in certain types of applications, especially mixed-signal ICs which combine theADC, DAC, and DSP… CONTINUE READING
