Switched-capacitor (SC) circuits are ubiquitous in CMOS mixed-signal ICs. Thermal noise, introduced by MOS switches and active amplifier circuitry, is the major performance limiter in these circuits. This webinar reviews analysis techniques to accurately analyze the noise performance of switched-capacitor circuits and provides simulation examples using the BDA AFS Platform that complement and verify the theoretical treatment. Circuits discussed range from basic passive and active track-and-hold circuits, to integrators, to SC delta-sigma modulators.
