This is a demonstration of digital-domain ISI-error correction for a multibit CT DS ADC. Here, the ISI-error model is discrete-time, based on [1].
The idea was inspired by [2], where the static and dynamic feedback-DAC noise was corrected by digital error correction. In [2], thermometer encoder was used in DAC and the number of correction coefficients is 3M, where M is the number of DAC unit-elements.

This demonstration shows that using dynamic element matching DAC encoder (DWA) can reduce the number of lookup-table correction coefficient from 3M to 1, which should make the ISI-error mitigation by digital error correction more viable.

The correction and calibration method demonstrated here is further documented in [3].

You need Delta-Sigma toolbox to run this demonstration.
