Thermal noise is one of the most important limiting factors on the performance of switched-capacitor (SC) circuit due to the aliasing effect of wide-band thermal noise. In this paper a new simple method for estimating the effect of thermal noise is presented. In the proposed technique only the discrete sampled noise is considered. HSPICE simulator and analytical analysis are used to estimate the sampled noise specification on each clock state. Next, using difference equations of the circuit, time domain simulation is done by MATLAB. Based on this method, a SC integrator is analyzed and results compared to the measured noise response.
