The performance of traditional continuous-time

(CT) delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) is

limited by their large sensitivity to feedback pulse-width variations

caused by clock jitter in their feedback digital-to-analog

converters (DACs). To mitigate that effect, we propose a modified

switched-capacitor (SC) feedback DAC technique, with a

variable switched series resistor (SR). The architecture has the

additional benefit of reducing the typically high SC DAC output

peak currents, resulting in reduced slew-rate requirements for the

loop-filter integrators. A theoretical investigation is carried out

which provides new insight into the synthesis of switched-capacitor

with switched series resistor (SCSR) DACs with a specified

reduction of the pulse-width jitter sensitivity and minimal power

consumption and complexity. To demonstrate the concept and to

verify the reduced pulse-width jitter sensitivity a 5 mW, 312 MHz,

second order, low-pass, 1-bit, CT delta-sigma modulator with SCSR

feedback was implemented in a 1.2 V, 90 nm, RF-CMOS process.

An SNR of 66.4 dB and an SNDR of 62.4 dB were measured

in a 1.92 MHz bandwidth. The sensitivity to wideband clock

phase noise was reduced by 30 dB compared to a traditional

switched-current (SI) return-to-zero (RZ) DAC.
