FWOTOM823 - BLA-based Design and Analysis of VCO-based Sigma-Delta Modulators


Nonlinear system theory is involved. The available theoretical frameworks depend on the assumed system properties and the applied signals. An example is the Volterra theory framework which uses a series expansion of the system’s behaviour around an operating point. This operating point can be fixed (classical Volterra theory), periodically varying, or can consist of an expansion around a reference signal. Volterra series expansions have the advantage to be a direct extension of the linear system theory, but have the disadvantage that they often lead to complex expressions and that they can only describe weakly nonlinear systems.
