The work described in this thesis has been carried out at NXP Semiconductors, the Netherlands, as part of the NXP reseach program. Front cover: Figure of a fictitious modern mobile phone, built up out of multiple small figures of phones. This symbolizes the convergence of single application phones, that only can be used to connect to a single type of network, into more agile, multi-standard phones with an increasing amount of functionality on board. The front cover also symbolizes the vast<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener noreferrer" href="https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4613-1443-1_10">doi:10.1007/978-1-4613-1443-1_10</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/cg34vk7z65cgleckvjw5lbhiqe">fatcat:cg34vk7z65cgleckvjw5lbhiqe</a> </span>

Back cover: The four squares on the back side of the thesis, symbolize the categories in which this thesis is split to analyze the quality of a system. The categories used are accuracy, flexibility, efficiency, robustness, and emission. The magnifying glass represents accuracy as you can use it to zoom in on the smallest detail. The pocket knife represents flexibility as its application area is versatile. The battery symbolizes the limited amount of energy available in mobile devices and therefore the high efficiency required from all its building blocks. The shield represents the robustness to out side world influences. The sword represents emission: does the building block harm its neighbors? The figure is also used in the thesis, but in a slightly different form. Title: The title represents the main subject of this thesis: Σ∆ converters. It also represents four of the five quality indicators named above: robustness, efficiency (low-power), accuracy (the highly-digitized receiver architecture requires a high resolution ADC) and flexibility. The fifth quality indicator emission is not included in this thesis, and therefore not represented in the title. c R.H.M. van Veldhoven 2010
