A continuous-time delta-sigma A/D modulator with 5 MS/s output rate in a 2.5 V 0.25 mum CMOS process is presented. The modulator has a fifth-order single-stage, dual-loop architecture allowing nearly one clock period quantizer delay. A multi-bit quantizer is used to increase resolution and multi-bit non-return-to-zero DACs are adopted to reduce clock jitter sensitivity. Capacitor tuning is utilized to overcome loop coefficient shifts due to process variations. Self-calibration is implemented to suppress current-steering DAC mismatch. Clocked at 60 MHz, the prototype chip achieves 81 dB peak SNR and 85 dB dynamic range with a 12X oversampling ratio. The power consumption is 50 mW.
