A CMOS 64 x 64 pixel area image sensor chip using SigmaDelta modulation at each pixel for A/D conversion is described. The image data output is digital. The chip was fabricated using a 1.2µm two layer metal single layer poly nwell CMOS process. Each pixel block consists of a phototransistor and 22 MOS transistors. Test results demonstrate a dynamic range potentially greater than 93dB, a signal to noise ratio (SNR) of up to 61dB, and dissipation of less than 1mW with a 5V power supply.

In this paper we propose a framework for stability analysis of EA modulators, and argue that limit cycles for constant inputs are natural objects to investigate in this context. We present a number of analytical and approximate techniques to aid the stability analysis of the double loop and interpolative modulators, and use these techniques to propose ways of improved design that explicitly take stability into account.

AbstractWe consider the application of EA modulators to analogtodigital conversion. We have previously shown that for constant input signals, optimal nonlinear decoding can achieve large gains in signaltonoise ratio (SNR) over linear decoding. In this paper we show a similar result for bandlimited input signals. The new nonlinear decoding algorithm is based on projections onto convex sets (POCS), and alternates between a timedomain operation and a band limitation to find a signal invariant under both. The timedomain operation results in a quadratic programming problem. The band limitation can be based on singular value decomposition of a certain matrix. We show simulation results for the SNR.performance of a POCSbased decoder and a linear decoder for the single loop, double loop and twostage CA modulators and for a specific fourthorder interpolative modulator. Depending on the modulator and the oversampling ratio, improvements in SNR of up to 1&20 dB can be achieved. I.

this paper, we propose a systematic design method for continuoustime SigmaDelta modulators. The transform technique is used to take into account any variation occuring between two sampling instants in the continuoustime DAC feedback signal. The proposed discretetime to continuoustime transformation method is general and wellsuited to design automation. A fifthorder lowpass as well as a sixth order bandpass modulators with RZ and NRZ feedback signals are given as design examples. I.

A dynamic element matching algorithm, data weighted averaging, is introduced for use in multibit \Delta\Sigma data converters. Using this algorithm, distortion spectra from DAC linearity errors are shaped by firstorder noise shaping, resulting in a dynamic range improvement of 9 dB/octave when DAC errors dominate. Combining this technique with random dithering eliminates the aliasing of the DAC errors into baseband. Simulations show that with only 1% element matching 110 dB signaltonoise ratio (18 bits) is achieved for a thirdorder 3bit modulator with an oversampling ratio of 128. 1 Introduction Oversampling \Delta\Sigma data converters have displaced traditional converter architectures in audio and instrumentation applications where low frequency, highresolution and high linearity conversion is required [1]. The high resolution obtained from these converters is attributed to the inherent linearity of a singlebit quantizer in the \Delta\Sigma modulator. This high linearity mak...

In this paper, the design procedure for a thirdorder continuoustime \Sigma\Delta modulator with RZ feedback is described. The circuit is realized using continuoustime currentmode integrators and DACs with switchedcurrent sources. A design method to find the minimum biasing current required to achieve the desired dynamic range is presented. With a sampling frequency of 25:6MHz, the circuit is expected to achieve 84dB of dynamic range for a 100kHz bandwidth input signal. The circuit operates from a power supply of 1:7V and consumes 7:4mW in a 0:35m CMOS process.

Analogtodigital conversion (ADC) which consists in a double discretization of an analog signal in time and in amplitude is increasingly used in modern data acquisition. However, the conversion process always implies some loss of information due to amplitude quantization. Oversampling is the technique currently used to reduce this loss of accuracy. The error reduction can be performed by lowpass filtering the quantized signal, thus eliminating the high frequency components of the quantization error signal. This is the classical method used to reconstruct the analog signal from its oversampled and quantized version. This reconstruction scheme yields a mean squared error (MSE) inversely proportional to the oversampling ratio R. The fundamental question pursued in this thesis is the following: how much information is available in the oversampled and quantized version of a bandlimited signal for its reconstruction? In order to identify this information, it is essential to go back to the original description of quantization which is typically deterministic. We show that a reconstruction scheme fully takes this information into account

Abstract—Conducted electromagnetic interference (EMI) is a major cause of concern in switchmode power supplies (SMPSs) which commonly use standard pulsewidth modulation (PWM). In this paper, Sigma–Delta (61) modulation is proposed as an alternative switching technique to reduce conducted EMI from an SMPS. The result of using 61 modulation is a spread in the spectrum of the conducted emissions so that large concentrations of power at discrete frequencies are avoided. Experimental timedomain waveforms and spectra of the switching function of firstorder and secondorder 61 modulators are presented to prove the viability of the scheme for EMI mitigation. These modulators are then applied to a dc–dc converter in an offtheshelf computer power supply and experimental results show a reduction of roughly 5–10 dB V in EMI emissions over standard PWM modulators.

A novel application and generalization of sigmadelta (61) modulation has emerged in threephase powerelectronic converters. A conventional modulator with scalar signals and binary quantizer is generalized to a modulator with vector signals and a hexagonal quantizer. Indeed, powerelectronic switching states may be thought of as determining the quantizer outputs. The output spectrum is a key performance measure for both communications and power electronics. This paper analytically derives the output spectrum of the hexagonal modulator with a constant input using ergodic theory and Fourier series on the hexagon. The switching rate of the modulator is important for powerelectronic design and formulas for the average switching rate are derived for constant and slowly varying sinusoidal inputs.
