This paper proposes a closed-form formula for the jitter-induced noise spectrum at the output of continuous-time ΔΣ modulators with NRZ feedback waveform. In this approach, the clock jitter effects are modeled as an additive noise in the feedback loop of the modulator. Making use of a conceptual model and following from the linear system theory, the output spectrum is explained versus the spectrum of the additive jitter noise.
