Adaptive noise cancellation (ANC) technique can removes thermal and shaped wideband quantization noise from the output of sigma-delta modulator and improves SNR and SFDR ratios. ANC filter more than desired signal passes harmonics of input signal caused by analog element such as operational amplifier of the integrator without any suppression and this issue causes less increment in SNR and SFDR of analog to digital converter. This paper presents a technique by adding an adaptive harmonic canceller filter in the front of ANC filter addresses this issue and improves considerably performance of the ADC. The simulation results demonstrate effectiveness of this combination technique in first order sigma-delta converter.
