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

Version Published Release Notes

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

Model accuracy improved. Removed extra material.

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