  • About this book

  • Provides the first comprehensive description of “digital-friendly” analog-to-digital converters using voltage controlled oscillators (VCO-based ADC)
  • Offers design guidelines of VCO-based ADCs and how to cope with non-idealities
  • Includes real examples of VCO-based ADCs used in applications such as RF wireless receivers, sensors, and phase-locked loops (PLLs)
This book describes time-domain analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) using voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs). Unlike conventional ADCs that require precise analog circuits in the voltage-domain, time-domain ADCs use mostly digital circuits that benefit from transistor scaling and therefore are suitable for current and future CMOS processes. This book is intended for designers who want to build ADCs with advanced CMOS processes using digital building blocks.
