Abstract
  • Delta-sigma modulators are currently a very popular technique for making high-resolution analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters (ADCs and DACs). Most delta-sigma modulators in production today employ single-bit quantization because a 1-bit DAC is inherently linear, whereas a multi-bit DAC is not. Were it not for this drawback, the use of multi-bit quantization would improve a delta-sigma modulator's performance by increasing the modulator's resolution or increasing the modulators's bandwidth, while at the same time whitening the quantization noise and improving modulator stability. This thesis explores the element-mismatch-shaping technique, which attenuates the noise caused by static element mismatch in a multi-level DAC by a method similar to delta-sigma modulation. Existing element-matching techniques are reviewed and some analytical and architectural work related to the realization of mismatch-shaping logic is presented. A custom switched-capacitor (SC) DAC is used to verify various element mismatch-shaping algorithms. Experiments show that mismatch-shaping can reduce harmonic distortion by up to 30 dB.
