Calice Meeting – Prague September 12 th 2007 7 A 16 bit DAC 3 rd order, 9 level modulator (1) A 96 dB SNR is necessary to achieve a 16 bit resolution. A 3 rd order, 9 level (3.2 bit) modulator leads to a SNR : 168dB for OSR=256 147dB for OSR=128 => related to the SC filter design (settling time). 126dB for OSR=64 Multi-bit : SC filtering and OPA constraints are relaxed quantization noise is reduced, a DEM is necessary to reduce the DNL effect of the 9 level DAC. The modulator was designed using the Matlab toolbox written by R. Schreier

Calice Meeting – Prague September 12 th 2007 11 A 16 bit DAC SC DAC Based on Direct Charge Transfer (DCT) : - DAC operation is performed during 1 (capacitor arrays charging) - Charges are shared with the feedback capacitor C during 2 (DCT) - Ref voltage is limited by the OPA dynamic range (linearity) Low pass DCT : Ref+ sum out Ref- 1.

Calice Meeting – Prague September 12 th 2007 13 A 16 bit DAC Differential OPA (1) The OPA used in the SC DAC and in the SC Filter was designed (D. Dzahini) to be implemented in 12 bit, 25MHz ADCs. The main features of this OPA are : - Open loop gain : 100dB - Gain-band product :130MHz - Dynamic range :1.6V - Power consumption :6mW (3 instances required => 18mW) Simulations have to be carried out to reduce the power consumption.

Calice Meeting – Prague September 12 th 2007 15 A 16 bit DAC Remaining tasks A first prototype will be submitted to the January 2008 run - Simulations have to be carried out to complete the SC filter design : filter topology & response OPA power consumption - The output stage has to be designed : differential to single ended converter (if implemented in the 1st proto) CT filter (if implemented in the 1st proto) output buffer (s) - Pulser & Offset cancellation : ? Pulser specification and design (who ?) The modulator has an offset cancellation capability, its control depends on the pulser design.
