Noise and area consumption has been a trade-off in circuit design. Especially for switched-capacitor filters (SCF), kT/C noise gives a limitation to the minimum value of unit capacitance. In case of SCFs with a large capacitance spread, this limitation will result in a large area consumption due to large capacitors. This paper introduces a technique to reduce capacitance spread using charge scaling. It will be shown that this technique can reduce total capacitance of SCFs without deteriorating their noise performances. A design method to reduce the output noise of SC low-pass filters (LPF) based on the combination of cut-set scaling, charge scaling and adaptive configuration is proposed. The proposed technique can reduce the output noise voltage by 30% for small input signals.
