Fully-VCO-Based High-Order \(\varDelta \varSigma \) ADC

Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


Scaling friendly in the light of the reducing voltage headroom and increasing time resolution of the nanometer CMOS technology, VCO-based quantizers have been exploited in CT \(\varDelta \varSigma \) ADCs.
