Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis proposes a novel fully digital technique for the estimation and correction of the DAC error in multi-bit delta sigma ADCs. The structure of the DAC error is indicated through a simple model for unit-element based DACs. The impact of the DAC error on the performance of ADC is then analyzed. Various techniques dealing with the DAC error are described and their drawbacks are pointed out. Based on the nature of the DAC error and the surrounding signals, a fully digital method to estimate the error from the ADC output and remove it is proposed. Simulation results are shown to support the effectiveness of the method. Simulations also show that the proposed technique can work together with the technique of adaptive compensation for quantization noise leakage in cascaded delta sigma (MASH) ADC cases. These two techniques are the foundation for the design of high speed, high resolution delta sigma ADCs with relaxed requirements on the analog circuits. To verify the proposed technique, an experimental MASH ADC was built, including the design and fabrication of a chip of a second-order multi-bit delta sigma ADC in a 1.6μm CMOS technology. The measured results show that the proposed DAC correction technique is highly effective.
