Abstract [en]

The thesis demonstrates a low-cost, low-bandwidth and low-resolution Analog-to- Digital Converter(ADC) in 0.35 um CMOS Process. A second-order Sigma-Delta modulator is used as the basis of the A/D Converter. A Semi-Uniform quantizer is used with the modulator to take advantage of input distributions that are dominated by smaller-amplitude signals e.g. Audio, Voice and Image-sensor signals. A Single-bit feedback topology is used with a multi-bit quantizer in the modulator. This topology avoids the use of a multi-bit DAC in the feedback loop – hence the system does not need to use digital correction techniques to compensate for a multi-bit DAC nonlinearity.

High-Level Simulations of the second-order Sigma-Delta modulator single-bit feedback topology along with a Semi-Uniform quantizer are performed in Cadence. Results indicate that a 5-bit Semi-Uniform quantizer with a Over-Sampling Ratio of 32, can achieve a resolution of 10 bits, in addition, a semi-uniform quantizer exhibits a 5-6 dB gain in SNR over its uniform counterpart for input amplitudes smaller than –10 dB. Finally, this system is designed in 0.35um CMOS process.
