A new solution to implement efficient switched-capacitor (SC) integrators is presented. In the proposed scheme, voltage buffers are opportunely introduced in order to prevent direct connection between the output and the capacitive feedback network of the circuit that characterizes classical SC integrator topologies during the charge transfer phase. Design guidelines to optimize the settling performances of the proposed circuit are also given. To demonstrate the possible advantages of the new solution, the proposed integrator is designed in a commercial 0.35-m CMOS technology. It is shown that compared with classical SC integrator topologies, the proposed configuration allows a significant improvement of the integrator speed to be achieved for a given power budget.
