This is a good book for beginners to have an understanding of delta-sigma design concepts. There are also practical examples, along with examples using the delta sigma toolbox.

It doesn't hurt that it's written by Schreier, a respected figure in the field of oversampling modulators.

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'.

This book is a very good way to start using Delta Sigma converters or understand how they work, but as many other good technical book, it is published only in english with no other language translation.

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.

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 Many pages of text could have been replaced by simple and unequivocal mathematical derivations.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.

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.

Much of the recent literature on digital signal processing has concentrated on the digital aspects of the task. The result is a surplus of books on the digital signal processing chips and programming techniques.

In the real world you have a signal and you need it digitized, or you have some digital data and you need a real life signal that you can send out somewhere. The real world refuses to become digital, its analog.

The literature on how to do this aspect has been sparse. And most of what does exist is in the form of a book by many authors. Their different writing style, different assumptions on the background of the readers and the inevitable disconnects between chapters make a consistent flow impossible.

In this book Dr. Temes, a professor at Oregon State brings a solid theoretical background to the writing. Dr. Schreier, a senior design engineer at Analog Devices brings an understanding of what is possible today. Both men have a wealth of experience in the subject and an ability to convey their experience and knowledge to the reader.
