About this Textbook

This textbook is appropriate for use in graduate-level curricula in analog to digital conversion, as well as for practicing engineers in need of a state-of-the-art reference on data converters.  It discusses various analog-to-digital conversion principles, including sampling, quantization, reference generation, nyquist architectures and sigma-delta modulation.  This book presents an overview of the state-of-the-art in this field and focuses on issues of optimizing accuracy and speed, while reducing the power level.
 
This new, second edition emphasizes novel calibration concepts, the specific requirements of new systems, the consequences of 22-nm technology and the need for a more statistical approach to accuracy.  Pedagogical enhancements to this edition include more than twice the exercises available in the first edition, solved examples to introduce all key, new concepts and warnings, remarks and hints, from a practitioner’s perspective, wherever appropriate.  Considerable background information and practical tips, from designing a PCB, to lay-out aspects, to trade-offs on system level, complement the discussion of basic principles, making this book a valuable reference for the experienced engineer.

About the authors

Marcel Pelgrom received his B.EE, M.Sc, and PhD from Twente University, Enschede, The Netherlands. In 1979, he joined Philips Research Laboratories, where his research has covered topics such as Charge Coupled Devices, MOS matching properties, analog-to-digital conversion, digital image correlation, and various analog building block techniques. He has headed several project teams, and was a team leader for high-speed analog-to-digital conversion. From 1996 until 2003, he was a department head for Mixed-Signal Electronics.

 

In addition to various activities concerning industry-academic relations, he is a research fellow in research on the edge of design and technology.

 

In 2003, he spent a sabbatical in Stanford University where he served as a consulting professor. Since 2007, he has been a member of the technical staff at NXP Semiconductors. Dr. Pelgrom was an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, has written over 40 publications, three book chapters, and holds 28 US patents. He currently lectures in the Philips Training Department at Twente University  and for MEAD Inc.
