In modern systems signal processing is performed in the digital domain. Contrary to analog circuits, digital signal processing offers more robustness, programmability, error correction and storage possibility. The trend to shift the A/D converter towards the input of the system requires A/D converters with more dynamic range and higher sampling speeds. This puts extreme demands on the A/D converter and potentially increases the power consumption.
This book analyses different A/D-converter architectures with an emphasis on the maximum achievable power efficiency. It is shown that in order to achieve high speed and high accuracy at high power efficiency, calibration is required. Calibration reduces the overall power consumption by using the available digital processing capability to relax the demands on critical power hungry analog components. Several calibration techniques are analyzed.
Those presented are applicable to other analog-to-digital systems, such as those applied in integrated receivers. Further refinements will allow using analog components with less accuracy, which will then be compensated by digital signal processing. The methods presented allow impl
