Low-Power Low-Voltage Sigma-Delta Modulators in Nanometer CMOSaddresses the low-power low-voltage Sigma-Delta ADC design in nanometer CMOS technologies at both the circuit-level and the system level.

The low-power low-voltage Sigma-Delta modulator design at the circuit level is introduced. A design example is presented in this book. This design is the first published Sigma-Delta design in a 90-nm CMOS technology and reaches a very high figure-of-merit.

At the system level, a novel systematic study on the full feedforward Sigma-Delta topology is presented in this book. As a design example, a fourth-order single-loop full feedforward Sigma-Delta modulator design in a 130-nm pure digital CMOS technology is presented. This design is the first design using the full feedforward Sigma-Delta topology and reaches the highest conversion speed among all the 1-V Sigma-Delta modulators to date.

Prof. Michiel Steyaert received his Ph.D. degree in electronics from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL) in June 1987. In 1988 he was an associated assistant professor at the U.C.L.A. From 1989 he joined the ESAT-MICAS group at the KUL, were he is now a Full Professor. His current research interests are in analog integrated circui...
