This book presents models and procedures to design pipeline analog-to-digital converters, compensating for device inaccuracies, so that high-performance specs can be met within short design cycles. These models are capable of capturing and predicting the behavior of pipeline data converters within less than half-a-bit deviation, versus transistor-level simulations. As a result, far fewer model iterations are required across the design cycle. Models described in this book accurately predict transient behaviors, which are key to the performance of discrete-time systems and hence to the performance of pipeline data converters.
Describes efficient procedures for hierarchical top-down design of pipeline converters
Presents new methodologies to reduce bottom-up iterations, through inherent embedding of transistor-level parameters, such as parasitic capacitances, transconductances, and saturation currents
Provides mathematical details of behavioral models, includes descriptions of the synthesis methods and associated tools and illustrates models through case studies supported by silicon prototypes
