Passive Loop Filter Zoom Analog to Digital Converters

Abstract This dissertation proposes and presents two different passive sigma-delta

modulator zoom Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) architectures. The first ADC is fullydifferential, synthesizable zoom-ADC architecture with a passive loop filter for lowfrequency Built in Self-Test (BIST) applications. The detailed ADC architecture and a step

by step process designing the zoom-ADC along with a synthesis tool that can target various

design specifications are presented. The design flow does not rely on extensive knowledge

of an experienced ADC designer. Two example set of BIST ADCs have been synthesized

with different performance requirements in 65nm CMOS process. The first ADC achieves

90.4dB Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) in 512µs measurement time... (more)
