Behavioral Modeling Of Sigma-Delta Modulator Non-Idealities With Two Step Quantization In Matlab/Simulink

An architecture to simplify the circuit implementation of analog-to-digital (A/D) converter in a sigma-delta (ΣΔ) modulator is proposed. The two-step quantization technique is utilized to design architecture of ΣΔ modulator. The architecture is based on dividing the A/D conversion into two time steps for achieving resolution improvement without decreasing speed. The novel architecture is designed to obtain high dynamic range of input signal, high signal-to-noise ratio and high reliability. Switched capacitor (SC) modulator performance is prone to various nonidealities, which affects overall circuit performance. In this paper a set of models are proposed which takes into account SC ΣΔ modulator nonidealities, such as sampling jitter, kT/C noise, and operational amplifier parameters (noise, finite dc gain, finite bandwidth, slew-rate and saturation voltages). Each nonidealities are modelled mathematically and their behaviour is verified using different analysis in MATLAB Simulink. Simulation results on a second-order SC ΣΔ modulator with two step quantization demonstrate the validity of the models proposed.
