Circuit Level Switched Capacitor ADC

This example shows how a sigma-delta ADC (analog to digital converter) uses sigma-delta modulation to convert an analog input signal into a digital output signal. The analog input to the sigma-delta ADC controls an oscillator that produces pulses of fixed voltage and duration, but with period between pulses being inversely proportional to the analog input. The oscillator pulses are integrated over a fixed time interval to give a digital representation of the analog input signal.
