Through the exchange of resolution in time for that in amplitude, oversampling methods are now widely used to enable the realization of high-resolution analog-to-digital converters in scaled CMOS VLSI technologies.? So-called oversampling modulators combine coarse quantization at sampling rates well above the Nyquist rate with feedback and subsequent digital signal processing to avoid the need for precision analog circuits.? Such modulators were originally conceived in the mid-twentieth century in the form of delta modulators, which digitize the rate of change of a signal, rather than the signal itself.? However, noise-shaping modulators that directly encode the signal proved to be a more robust approach and have subsequently come into widespread use. In particular, cascades of inherently stable sigma-delta (or, equivalently, delta-sigma) modulators are an efficient means of extending the dynamic range of oversampling converters that are largely immune to both analog circuit imperfections and fundamental stability concerns.? This presentation begins with an overview of both architectural and circuit issues associated with the design of noise-shaping modulators, and then presents examples of some approaches to their implementation under increasingly severe constraints on power dissipation and supply voltage.
