The following substitution will compile (with what I presume is the correct semantics - a double precision random value with a range of [0, 1] uniformly distributed )

I am just wonder if we could download the old version of this toolbox? The latest one changed something that cause more problem than the previous one. For example, if I use CIFB model, all the zeros are changed to new positions with real part value composed to changed to 1. And it is not I hope to see these things that change data automatically.

Extremely helpful and educational toolbox.

Not sure if the author reads this, but here is a tiny improvement for clans.m:

For better convergence, transform the errors in minimization functions (dsclansObj6a,dsclansObj6b) into quadratic errors.

1. Open clans6.m
2. in sub-function dsclansObj6a, after "f = abs(evalTF(H,exp(1i*pi/OSR)));" type "f=f*f".
3. in sub-function dsclansObj6a, after "g = sum(abs(impulse(H,100))) -1 - Q;" type "g=g*g".

This way the target value for Q will be reached quite accurately at low OSR.

I am trying to implement a Band Pass Sigma Delta modulator SDM using delsig toolbox.

These are the MATLAB commands that I am running to get the modulator coefficients:
NTF = synthesizeNTF(4,320/(2*10),0,1.5*1,0.25);
STF = zpk([-1 , 1 , -1 , 1],[-0.2302 - 0.7241i , -0.2302 + 0.7241i , 0.2302 - 0.7241i , 0.2302 + 0.7241i],0.0976,[ ]);
[a,g,b,c] = realizeNTF(NTF,'CRFF',STF);
The MATLAB outputs:

a =

0.5558 0.2435 0.0436

g =


b =

0.1316 -1.0603 4.4905 0.3558

c =

1 1 1

This is wrong because there should be 4 coefficients for 'a' vector, whereas what we get only 3 coefficients for vector 'a' . Similarly is the case for vectors'b', 'c' and 'g'.

What could be possibly wrong?

Dear Richard Schreier,
I am a new man in deltasigma, so I follow your book" Understanding Delta-Sigma Data Converters by Schreier and Temes (ISBN 0-471-46585-2)" step by step, and I meet a problem "figure 8.4" and "figure 8.5" in page "265" and "266".
In your book, the SNR without window is "SNR = 76.4 dB @ OSR = 64",the SNR with window is "SNR = 119.2 dB @ OSR = 64".
But to my simulation, the result is "SNR = 86.1 dB @ OSR = 64" without window, "SNR = 85.7 dB @ OSR = 64" with window.
this is my code:
close all;

OSR= 64;
H= synthesizeNTF(5, OSR, 1);
nLev= 3;
Nfft= 2^ 13;
tone_bin= 57;
t= [0: Nfft- 1];
u= 0.5* (nLev- 1)* sin(2* pi* tone_bin/ Nfft* t);
v= simulateDSM(u, H, nLev);
n= 1: 150;
stairs(t(n), u(n), 'g');
hold on;
stairs(t(n), v(n), 'b');

%NTF simulation, SQNR cal and spectral estimation without window
spec = fft(v)/(Nfft*(nLev-1)/2);
snr = calculateSNR(spec(1:ceil(Nfft/(2*OSR))+1),tone_bin);
NBW = 1/Nfft;
f = linspace(0,0.5,Nfft/2+1); %this may be ahead?
Sqq = 4*(evalTF(H,exp(2i*pi*f))/(nLev-1)).^2/3;
figure; %add a new figure
hold on;
s= sprintf('SNR= %4.1fdB @ OSR= %2.0f\n', snr, OSR);
text(0.05, -20, s);

%NTF simulation, SQNR cal and spectral estimation without window
spec = fft(v.*(hann(Nfft)'))/(Nfft*(nLev-1)/4); %convert hann(Nfft) to vector matrix
snr = calculateSNR(spec(1:ceil(Nfft/(2*OSR))+1),tone_bin);
NBW = 1.5/Nfft;
f = linspace(0,0.5,Nfft/2+1); %this may be ahead?
Sqq = 4*(evalTF(H,exp(2i*pi*f))/(nLev-1)).^2/3;
figure; %add a new figure
hold on;
s= sprintf('SNR= %4.1fdB @ OSR= %2.0f\n', snr, OSR);
text(0.05, -20, s);
I use matlab r2011b for windows 64bit;

I am trying to implement a SDM using delsig toolbox. The following are the commands I try to run, along with the errors.

H = synthesizeChebyshevNTF(2,12.5,1,1.5,0);
>> stf = zpk([],[],1,1) ;
>> [a g b c] = realizeNTF(H,'CRFFD',stf)
Error using /
Matrix dimensions must agree.

Error in realizeNTF (line 246)
a = -real(zL1/T);

Can you suggest me how to rectify the error???

Possible bug in function quantize() (file simulateDSM.c).
In saturate code:
if( vv > nLevels )
vv = nLevels-1;
else if( vv < -nLevels )
vv = 1-nLevels;

May be correctly:

if( vv > (nLevels -1))
vv = nLevels-1;
else if( vv < (1-nLevels) )
vv = 1-nLevels;

To the folks having trouble compiling the Mex files on Windows with 64-bit Matlab (bizet74 perhaps?), you will need to define the '__STDC__' symbol. For example, to compile simulateDSM.c, you would do 'mex -D__STDC__

Respected Sir,

I am trying to simulate a sixth order sigma delta modulator using the
"Delta Sigma Toolbox".

1) My desired NTF is a 6th order Chebyshev type II high pass filter.
Hence, I ran the following command :
>> ntf = synthesizeChebyshevNTF(6,64,2,1.5,0)

The toolbox outputs the function given below:
(z^2 - 2z + 1) (z^2 - 1.999z + 1) (z^2 - 1.998z + 1)
(z^2 - 1.629z + 0.6655) (z^2 - 1.705z + 0.7437) (z^2 - 1.854z + 0.8979)

Sampling time: 1

2) I wish to implement the above NTF using the "CIFB" structure. So
I ran the following command:
>>[a,g,b,c] = realizeNTF(ntf,'CIFB')
which gives the output
a =

0.0001 0.0013 0.0124 0.0794 0.3223 0.8120

g =

0.0002 0.0022 0.0012

b =

0.0001 0.0013 0.0124 0.0794 0.3223 0.8120 1.0000

c =

1 1 1 1 1 1

3) I tried to construct the "CIFB" structure using the coefficient
values provided by the toolbox, mentioned in the previous step.

4) I try to analyse the frequency content of the output (y2 in the
simulink file attached with this mail). I ran the following commands :
>> NFFT = 2^nextpow2(length(y2)); % Next power of 2 from length of y
>> Y = fft(y2,NFFT)/length(y2);
>> f = 300e6/2*linspace(0,1,NFFT/2+1);
>> plot(f,2*abs(Y(1:NFFT/2+1)))

5) The output is more like a low pass filter and not a high pass expected.

Hence, i request you to kindly have look at the .mdl file and the
commands executed by me, and help me find the mistake that I have

25 Nov 2010 Sridhar

Dear Dr. Schreier I am trying to use the toolbox to simulate a Sigma Delta Converter in Simulink. I was able to do it succesfully for a CIFF structure and now I am doing it for a CIFB structure.
Although I am able to simulate the Sigma Delta with the toolbox, it is unstable in Simulink.
Moreover I find that the CIFB topology shown in the manual is different as in this report (refer to figure 4 on page 5):

My code is:
ntf=synthesizeNTF(order, OSR, OPT, H_inf, f0);
[a,g,b,c]=realizeNTF(ntf, 'CIFB');
ABCD = stuffABCD(a,g,b,c,'CIFB');

Then I use the calculated a,g,b,c values in simulink.

best regards and thanks

Thanks very much for your sharing. For quadrature band pass sigma-delta ADC design, when we use the synthesizeQNTF to get the NTF, then we can get the ABCD matrix by the realizeQNTF function. Finally how we can determine the coefficient like the [a,g,b,c] in low pass or band pass structure? Also for the quadrature structure, there is FF/FB/PFF/PFB, what is the difference between them and the previous CIFF/CIFB/CRFF/CRFB?
Thanks very much.

Who can tell me, in the book "Understanding Delta-Sigma Data Converters ", in page 265,

1. spec = fft(v)/(Nfft*(nLev-1)/2),
why (nLev-1)/2 should be counted in to the spectrum computation?

2. Sqq = 4 * (evalTF(H,exp(2*pi*f))/(nLev-1)).^2/3,
why does 4/3 mean in this equation?

Thanks a lot!

Dear Richard,

First of all many thanks for developing such a nice toolbox and authoring such a great book "Understanding Delta-Sigma Data Converters".
I am about to design a 4th order/10MHz BW/CT/Quadrature delta-sigma ADC.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any function and demo regarding design and simulation of a complex filter in the delsig toolbox. I would be grateful if you inform me about any enhancement of this toolbox for designing complex DS ADCs.
Your time and consideration are appreciated in advance.

Thanks for such a useful tool box. I have a question of SNR calculation.
In the tool box, the function, caltulateSNR,is used to approximate in-band signal power and noise power, and then SNR is calculated. the codes are as follows:
signalBins = [f-nsig+1:f+nsig+1];
signalBins = signalBins(signalBins>0);
signalBins = signalBins(signalBins<=length(hwfft));
s = norm(hwfft(signalBins)); % *4/(N*sqrt(3)) for true rms value;
noiseBins = 1:length(hwfft);
noiseBins(signalBins) = [];
n = norm(hwfft(noiseBins));
if n==0
snr = Inf;
snr = dbv(s/n);

My question is: Since the length of signal bins and noise bins are totally different, how can signal power and noise power be substituted by
s = norm(hwfft(signalBins)) and n = norm(hwfft(noiseBins)), respectively.
I think the signal power and noise power should be like s = norm(hwfft(signalBins))*(4/N*sqrt(length(signalBins))) and n = norm(hwfft(noiseBins))*(4/N*sqrt(length(noiseBins))), respectively.
May be I'm wrong. But i'm really confused.

Dear Richard,
thank you for your toolbox. It looks very impresive.
I have one questions:
if I sample 1 second audio with 8000 Khz I will get a variable with 8000 points(i.e. >>x=wavrecord(8000,8000);)
when I simulate the output of a delta sigma modulator (when the input is x) with OSR=64 the output signal has a length of 8000. Why is that?...shouldn't it be 512000 because of the oversampling?)
Thank you.

RE: current mirror

Don't copy everything from the book. He was a professor at Oregon State U. when he created the toolbox -- Professors don't test their codes, the graduate students do.

He just took whatever results or claims that his student gave to him...You have to try testing every code by yourself since you're not a professor :)

The file firpm.m is missed when i run designHBF.m program in the matlab 6.5 R13 software. please give some suggestions if possible

The calculateSNR.m is a good approximation, but might have problem when the number of points considered increased.

Very good. But just failed to compile the simulateDSM.c under Linux Matlab 6.5, always says that the file is not normal or not existed. For Window Matlab, it is okay.

Very useful tool to design high order single loop SD modulators
It will be nice if this toolbox is added in the next versions of MATLAB.

I need the synthesizeNTF and CLAN original document

Nice tool. Makes life of novice delta sigma designer easy

14 Feb 2003 guillaume de cremoux

Very good when modulator order greater than 3; otherwise the famous "0.5" coefficients do the same job. When very low OSR (<32), filter refinement does not flatten enough the NTF. Excellent tool at medium OSR, and high modulator order.

It does what it should... thanks.

Excellent Work. It will be great help to design sigma-delta modulator, especially in system level.

Great tools for design Delta-Sigma modulator

03 Dec 2002 Paul Muller

Very useful, not only for understanding, but also for system-level simulation for IC design

Great work ... thank you.

It's a well done work!
Thank u!


modifying description

Mathworks changed the internal representation of the zpk object in (R2006b), and this caused segmentation faults when simulateDSM or simulateESL were called with zpk arguments. These functions have been updated to fix this problem.

06 Jan 2003

Expanded functionality and updated for Matlab 6.

13 Dec 2004

Updated clans.m so that it works with old and new versions of the Optimization Toolbox. Corrected the documentation for designHBF.m

06 Jul 2009 1.2

Added functions for realizing an NTF with a continuous-time loop filter and for handling quadrature modulators.

29 Dec 2011 1.3

Incorporated Jeffrey Gealow's improvements which remove restrictions on the tdac argument in realizeNTF_ct and mapCtoD. Values such as [1 3] or [2 3] are now OK.

04 Jan 2016 2016.0

Added designPBF.m (for designing polynomial-based filters using Hunter's method). Added dsexample*.m. Replaced simulateESL with simulateMS for simulating mismatch-shaping. Expanded dsdemo5.m (demonstration of mismatch shaping).

04 Jan 2016 2016.0

Actually uploaded the file this time.

05 Jun 2016 2016.1

Added demoLPandBP.m. Updated dsexample1.m and dsexample2.m
