File Information

This file contains functions for:
- estimating the quantizer noise from DSM and
- estimating the mismatch noise from DWA-DAC.

Both (time-domain) models generate noise estimate for arbitrary input vector (dc, sinusoid, n-tone, sawtooth etc.).

Applicable to bandpass DSMs and bandpass DWA.

For simulation, DS toobox is recommended: File ID: #19

Simulink DSM/DWA model can be found in: File ID: #23079

The time-domain models presented here was also discussed in my doctoral dissertation, see chapter 6 in:

Comment only
30 Nov 2010 1.1

Added a complementing model: a simulink model of a digital Delta-Sigma modulator. The quantizer for this model is "truncation": unsigned integer ouput.

21 Jun 2011 1.2

Model accuracy improved. Removed extra material.

21 Jun 2011 1.5

Added a model for multibit DSM's mismatch shaper.
Fixed a bug in the DSM noise model.
