Novel implementation techniques, such as the use of direct-charge-transfer stage, noise coupling, and dynamic element matching can improve the performance of wideband ΔΣ ADCs. However, they introduce extra loop delay, which compromises the low-distortion property and even the loop stability. This paper shows how the addition of independent feedback and feed-forward branches to the loop filter can compensate the extra loop delay, and restore the desired signal and noise transfer functions. The design methodology is then generalized for different kinds of ΔΣ ADCs, and the low-distortion property is analyzed. Two wideband delta-sigma ADCs have been designed and simulated to verify the theory.
