Part 2 of this series showed how a dual-slope integrator could fix the major limitations of a single slope converter. Two major limitations of the dual-slope topology are comparator sensitivity and dielectric absorption. Suppose that instead of waiting until the end of the integration period to start precisely removing the charge, the references are incrementally subtracted during the integration time.
