Editorial Reviews

Review

"…a comprehensive introduction to data converters…novice engineers…[and] students who specialize in circuit design, signal processing, and communications will find this book very useful." (E-STREAMS, February 2006)

"...a 'one-stop shop' for engineers who want a comprehensive introduction...an excellent starting point for engineers entering the field, as well as a useful reference for experts." (IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Newsletter, September 2005)

"…a comprehensible tutorial describing the design of base-band, band-pass, and quadrature delta-sigma modulators…" (CHOICE, April 2005)

From the Back Cover

Learn how to harness the power of delta-sigma data converters

Understanding Delta-Sigma Data Converters brings readers a clear understanding of the principles of delta-sigma (ΔΣ) converter operation—analog to digital and digital to analog. It introduces the best computer-aided analysis and design techniques available. With an understanding of the great versatility of the ΔΣ converter, readers can apply their new knowledge to a wide variety of applications, including digital telephony, digital audio, wireless and wired communications, medical electronics, and industrial and scientific instrumentation. The authors make the material accessible to all design engineers by focusing on developing an understanding of the physical operation rather than getting mired in complex mathematical treatments and derivations.

Written for entry-level readers, the publication has a natural flow that begins with basic concepts, enabling the readers to develop a solid foundation for the book's more complex material. The text, therefore, starts with a general introduction to the ΔΣ converter, including a brief historical overview to place it in context. Next, the publication introduces the first-order ΔΣ modulator, covering oversampling, noise-shaping, decimation filtering and other key concepts. Then, using the first-order modulator as a foundation, second and higher-order modulators are presented and analyzed. Finally, the authors delve into implementation considerations and present several design examples using the Delta-Sigma Toolbox.

Everything needed to facilitate quick comprehension and help readers apply their newly learned principles is provided: Simplified methods to understand complicated concepts such as spectral estimation and switched noise References that lead to in-depth analysis of specialized topics Figures and charts that illustrate complex design issues Conclusion section at the end of each chapter that highlights the key points Reference manual for the Delta-Sigma Toolbox, along with numerous practical examples that illustrate the use of the Toolbox

This is essential reading for all design engineers who want to learn and fully harness the powerful capabilities of ΔΣ data converters. Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students will find the book's logical organization and clear style, coupled with numerous practical examples, a great entry into the field.

Format: Hardcover
This is certainly one of the best book written on delta-sigmas but a good book on the subject has yet to be written.
There is a chapter dedicated to design examples which is quite good. Multi-bit versus single bit, high order versus low order modulators gets good coverage. The weakness is the organisation of similar information dispersed in several chapters. The authors tried to avoid an overly mathematical style of writting but one wishes a little less hand waving. Many pages of text could have been replaced by simple and unequivocal mathematical derivations. I found the page layout is below average and exposition of ideas and concepts too superficial. This book would have been ok if it was reasonably priced given the average quality of its content but it is twice what it should be.

I have read the first three chapters and I was hoping to find a deeper understanding of the Delta-Sigma Data Converters. But I found out that the book presents formulae without derivation. I was disappointed and did not want to go any further in the reading of the book. I want to encourage the authors of this book to revise it in order to provide formula derivations. The book as is would not be a good text for a college class because without derivations there is not a good understanding.

The first chapter or two are very clear, but once it gets into higher-level converters, it should have more explanation. The author falls back to equation after equation and more graphs of signals would have been helpful.

The right kind of book to get started on sigma delta ADC design. Couple of design examples in this book can be almost directly used to build a thermally limited 12-bit sigma delta.

The concepts of continuous time sigma delta, multilevel ADC, using the Schrier toolbox, switched capacitor noise analysis are well explained in this book. This book is a must for an analog/ADC designer working upon sigma delta ADC.

Hi,
I bought this book sometime last month. Received it couple of weeks back. It was delivered promptly, but the book print quality seems to be bad. In fact it looks like a fake! Looks more like a photocopy of the original book. So much for paying this kind of money to buy the 'original'.
