A modeling technique for simulating the noise
performance of chopper-stabilized switched-capacitor
filters using SPICE2 is presented. A method for
selection of switched-capacitor network (SCN) stages
to be chopped and an op amp topology for low noise
applications are also outlined. Validity of the
modeling is verified by the close agreement...
This thesis describes design techniques for high-performance switched-capacitor
(SC) circuits, primarily for high-linearity low-noise SC circuits in the presence of
component imperfections, such as nonlinear op-amp voltage transfer characteristics,
capacitor nonlinearities as well as the finite op-amp dc gain and op-amp offset and noise.
Various correlated-double-sampling (CDS) schemes are discussed,...
In this work a new voltage buffer, the drain-follower, achieves 300MHz band-width
with 2pF load, a dc gain of 0.993V/V, 1mV offset voltage, -60 dB total harmonic
distortion at 1.4Vpp output voltage and 6.5mW power dissipation from 5V
supply. A unity-gain buffer switched-capacitor biquad filter has been implemented
Electrical energy storage devices are currently the main limiting factor in many electrical devices and with the increasing demands placed on electrical power over fossil fuels, high energy density materials are essential. Previous research by Huang et al. on bulk (1-x)Bi(Zn₁/₂Ti₁/₂)O₃-xABO₃ solid solution systems led to the discovery of an...
A frequency compensation technique for increasing the
settling speed of two-stage operational amplifiers used in
switched-capacitor applications has been developed. By
properly decompressing the pole-zero doublet to form a
three-pole one zero system, the settling speed is increased
up to 50 percent as compared to the optimized two-pole
It has been verified by theoretical analysis, circuit simulation and test that two
switch transistors in parallel in a simple sample and hold circuit can be achieve high speed
with low error voltage due to charge injection. The wide transistor provides low RC time
constant when it is closed and...
Voltage converters or charge pumps find their use in many circuits. They are extensively used in hand held devices as cell phones, pagers, PDA's and laptops. Some of the important issues relating to design of voltage regulators for handheld devices are size, efficiency and noise. Another important factor to be...
