Dynamic Error Calibration in DACs for Continuous-Time Delta-Sigma Modulator
Nowadays, state-of-the-art continuous-time delta-sigma modulators are mostly limited by nonidealities in their multi-bit DACs. Different from traditional discrete-time counterpart working under relatively low frequency, static errors in the DAC is not the only dominant error source. Continuous-time Delta-Sigma modulators reported in latest publications can easily handle Giga-hertz sampling rates. Dynamic errors in the DAC become more pronounced and starting limit the linearity of the modulator. In this preliminary presentation, impacts of DAC nonidealities in delta-sigma modulator will be illustrated. A novel dynamic error calibration method will be proposed to target a prototype chip with over 80dB SNDR within 50MHz bandwidth.
