CTSD Precision ADCs – Part 1: How to Improve Your Precision ADC Signal Chain Design Time

Abstract

Precision signal chain designers are challenged to meet noise performance demands in medium bandwidth applications and often end up making a trade-off between noise performance and accuracy. Achieving faster time to market and getting their design right the first time can add further pressure. Continuous-time sigma-delta (CTSD) ADCs bring out inherent architectural benefits and simplify signal chain design to reduce solution size and help customers achieve faster time to market for their end products. In this series of articles, we will explain the inherent architectural benefits of CTSD ADCs and how they are adapted to a wide range of precision medium bandwidth applications. We will take a deep dive into signal chain design to educate designers on the key advantages of CTSD technology and explore the AD4134 precision ADC’s ease of design features.
