Comparator-Based Switched-Capacitor Integrator for use in Delta-Sigma Modulator
MetadataShow full item record
A comparator-based switched capacitor integrator for use in a Delta Sigma ADC has been designed. Basic theory about comparator-based circuits has been presented and design equations have been developed. The integrator had a targeted performance of a bandwidth of 1.5MHz with a SNR of 80dB. Due to the lack of a complete modulator feedback system, the integrator was simulated in open-loop. For the integrator not to saturate in open-loop, an overshoot calibration circuit was enabled during the simulation. This resulted in a severe deterioration of the integrated signal. The results are therefore significantly lower than expected, with a SNR of about 39dB but can be expected to be better in a closed-loop simulation. The power consumption of the implemented modules is 0.43mW. However, this is without several modules which were implemented as ideal.
