Using Delta-Sigma Can Be As Easy As ADC - Part 2

Last Updated:

In Part 1 of this series, I took a historical approach to delta-sigma modulation with the single-slope converter. The biggest weakness of the single-slope converter is that its accuracy depends on the component values of the integrator (ramp generator). To fix this, make sure the input voltage and reference voltage both pass through the same integrating path. To read more, click the download link below or visit Electronic Design.
