Analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) converters provide the link between the analog world of transducers and the digital world of signal processing, computing, digital data collection, data storage on magnetic material or optical disks and data processing systems. Practical converters must use standard digital CMOS technology without requiring special processing options or processing steps. Scaling of digital technology into the submicron range results in a reduction of the supply voltage into the 1 V range and below.
Designs in this field require special circuit techniques to solve this problem. Examples and practical designs will be discussed in this book. CMOS Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters describes in depth converter specifications like Effective Number of Bits (ENOB), Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), Integral Non-Linearity (INL), Differential Non-Linearity (DNL) and sampling clock jitter requirements. Relations between these specifications and practical issues like matching of components and offset parameters of differential pairs are derived.CMOS Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters describes the requirements of input and signal reconstruction filtering in case a converter is applied into a signal processing system.CMOS Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters describes design details of high-speed A/D and D/A converters, high-resolution A/D and D/A converters, sample-and-hold amplifiers, voltage and current references, noise-shaping converters and sigma-delta converters, technology parameters and matching performance, comparators and limitations of comparators and finally testing of converters.CMOS Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters is the second edition of the most comprehensive book available on this subject.
It contains an extensive bibliography and an index to all subjects.CMOS Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters describes in an innovative manner the small signal stability of noise-shaping 1-bit and multi-bit coders and sigma-delta converters.CMOS Integrated Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog Converters is an ideal book for use in advanced courses and is an essential reference for researchers and practicing system and circuit designers in this field.
