Abstract: This paper introduces a CAD methodology to assist the de signer in the implementation of continuous-time (CT) cas- cade Σ∆ modulators. The salient features of this methodology ar e: (a) flexible behavioral modeling for optimum accuracy- efficiency trade-offs at different stages of the top-down synthesis process; (b) direct synthesis in the continuous-time domain for minimum circuit complexity and sensitivity; a nd (c) mixed knowledge-based and optimization-based architec- tural exploration and specification transmission for enhanced circuit performance. The applicability of this methodology will be illustrated via the design of a 12 bit 20 MHz CT Σ∆ modulator in a 1.2V 130nm CMOS technology.
