About this book


This book is dedicated to the analysis of parametric amplification with special emphasis on the MOS discrete-time implementation. This implementation is demonstrated by the presentation of several circuits where the MOS parametric amplifier cell is used: small gain amplifier, comparator with embedded pre-amplification, discrete-time mixer/IIR-Filter, and analog-to-digital converter (ADC).  Experimental results are shown to validate the overall design technique.

  • Provides the complete theoretical analysis, supported by electrical simulations, of the parametric amplification technique in both continuous time and discrete time domains;
  • Describes the design flow of an ADC fully based on discrete-time parametric amplification in CMOS technology;
  • Presents a high speed time-interleaved pipeline ADC, based on parametric MOS amplification techniques described, complementing theory discussed with experimental results.
