In many sensor applications, a high-resolution analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is a key block. The use of an incremental delta-sigma ADC (IADC) is often well suited for such applications. While the energy-efficiency of IADCs has improved by several orders of magnitude over the past decade, the implementation of high performance IADCs, especially in battery-powered systems, is still challenging. This paper presents a tutorial review on energy-efficient IADCs and addresses the progress in this area. This paper describes the fundamentals of IADCs and energy-efficient hybrid IADC architectures. Various design techniques for improving the energy-efficiency of the IADCs are described. This paper is intended to serve as a starting point for the development of a new energy-efficient IADC.
