Modern delta-sigma A/D and D/A converters are capable of very high levels of performance. Realizing the full potential from this class of converters requires attention to many details. This paper discusses these details which include clock jitter and interference effects, ground plane techniques, minimizing power supply coupling and reducing tone effects. The paper concludes with a checklist of rules, which, if followed, will ensure optimal converter operation.
