DT ΣΔ-Modulator Design Example
This chapter presents the high-level design of a discrete time Sigma-Delta modulator, from specifications to system characterization. The aim of this exercise is to practice what is covered in the book and to further familiarize with the Simulink® Toolbox functions. The reader should be aware that the design choices proposed are not the only possible solution, and several alternative designs may be able to achieve the same, or even superior, performances. Therefore, thoughtful creativity is encouraged in the reader who wishes to experiment and challenge this simple design!
