This very detailed book discusses architectures, circuits and procedures for the optimum design of bandpass sigma-delta A/D interfaces for mixed-signal chips in standard CMOS technologies. It provides uniquely in-depth coverage of switched-current errors, which supports the design of high performance SI chips.
