Abstract
This thesis is composed of six publications and an overview of the research topic, which also summarizes the work. The research presented in this thesis focuses on research into analog baseband circuits for sensor systems. The research is divided into three different topics: the integration of analog baseband circuits into a radio receiver for sensor applications; the integration of an ΔΣ modulator A/D converter into a GSM/WCDMA radio receiver for mobile phones, and the integration of algorithmic A/D converters for a capacitive micro-accelerometer interface. All the circuits are implemented using deep sub-micron CMOS technologies. The work summarizes the design of different blocks for sensor systems. The research into integrated analog baseband circuits for a radio receiver focuses on a circuit structures with a very low power dissipation and that can be implemented using only standard CMOS technologies. The research into integrated ΔΣ modulator A/D converter design for a GSM/WCDMA radio receiver for mobile phones focuses on the implications for analog circuit design emerging from using a very deep sub-micron CMOS process. Finally, in the research into algorithmic A/D converters for a capacitive microaccelerometer interface, new ways of achieving a good performance with low power dissipation, while also minimizing the silicon area of the integrated A/D converter are introduced.
