a Python package to synthesize, simulate, scale and map to implementable topologies delta sigma modulators.

Project description


A port of the **MATLAB Delta Sigma Toolbox** based on free software and
very little sleep

The **python-deltasigma** is a Python package to *synthesize, simulate,
scale and map to implementable topologies* **delta sigma modulators**.

It aims to provide **a 1:1 Python port** of Richard Schreier's
***excellent*** `MATLAB Delta Sigma
Toolbox <>`__,
the *de facto* standard tool for high-level delta sigma simulation, upon
which it is very heavily based. | alpha|

``python-deltasigma`` runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

Installing requires **Python 2.6+** or **3.3+**, **numpy**, **scipy**
(>= 0.11.0) and **matplotlib**.

Strongly recommended: **Cython** - for significantly faster delta sigma
modulator simulations.

They are packaged by virtually all the major Linux distributions.

I do not run Windows, so I can't really provide more info (sorry),
except that people tell me they manage to have a working setup.

When the dependencies are satisfied, run:


pip install deltasigma

to install the latest stable version from the `Python Package Index
(PYPI) <>`__, or:


python install

if you're installing a development version from Git.


Install the `sphinx <>`__ package to build the
documentation yourself.

The test suite requires
`setuptools <>`__, used to
access the reference function outputs.

Testing can be automated with
`nose <>`__ and triggered with:


python test


In addition to the notebooks found in the ``examples/`` directory,
ported from the MATLAB Delta Sigma toolbox:

1. You can find the included `package documentation
online <>`__.

2. The original MATLAB Toolbox provides in-depth documentation, which is
very useful to understand what the toolbox is capable of. See
`DSToolbox.pdf <>`__
`OnePageStory.pdf <>`__
(*PDF warning*).

3. The book:

Richard Schreier, Gabor C. Temes, *Understanding Delta-Sigma Data
Converters*, ISBN: 978-0-471-46585-0, November 2004, Wiley-IEEE Press

is probably *the most authoritative resource on the topic*. Chapter
8-9 show how to use the MATLAB toolkit and the observations apply
also to this Python port. Links `on
amazon <>`__,
`on the Wiley-IEEE
press <,miniSiteCd-IEEE2.html>`__.

Version 0.1 series

The 0.1 series features support for (real) baseband and passband modulator

**0.1-9**: Add support for modulators with multiple outputs, allowing simulating
MASH cascade DSMs.
* Add support in ``partitionABCD()`` for specifying the number of outputs.
* Add support for multiple quantizers in ``calculateTF()``.
* BUGFIX: Fix simulation of DSMs with multiple quantizers.
* BUGFIX: ``cancelPZ()`` was not testing the first root.
* ``pretty_lti()`` now returns 0 if k is 0 after rounding.
* ``plotPZ()`` doesn't list coincident real roots as complex conjugate
roots with imag(root) = +/-0.
* DOC: add example of MASH cascade.

**0.1-8**: Accept both tuples and lists as NTFs for simulation.
* Previously passing a tuple for the NTF resulted in an error. Fixed.
* Doc fixes in ``mapCtoD()``.

**0.1-7**: Quantization fix in the Cython backends. More tests.
* A bug was found in the function responsible for quantizing the loop
filter output in ``simulateDSM()``, only the Cython implementations are
affected: **all users are strongly recommended to upgrade**.
* Add more test for ``simulateDSM()``.
* Check for the filter and data lengths in ``sinc_decimate()``.

**0.1-6**: ``sinc_decimate()`` fix, NTF matching method in ``realizeNTF_ct()``
* An off-by-1 indexing bug was found in ``sinc_decimate()``, **all users are
strongly recommended to update**.
* Add NTF matching method to ``realizeNTF_ct()``.

**0.1-5**: CRFFD support, separate tests, less verbosity and DOC fixes.
* Add CRFFD support (see ``realizeNTF``, ``mapABCD`` and ``stuffABCD``).
* Move all tests to a dedicated location (tests/).
* Ensure float64 is the data representation when simulating DSM.
* Add the ``simulations_backends`` variable and its doc.
* Cython: disable cblas extension on Win. Reduce verbosity.
* Multiple minor fixes to ensure scalars are never returned in place of

Many thanks to Shayne Hodge for reporting issues with ``deltasigma`` on
Windows and several patches to the test suite.

**0.1-4**: Cython implementation of ``simulateDSM()``, PEP8 and DOC fixes.
* ``deltasigma/_simulateDSM_cblas.pyx`` and
``deltasigma/_simulateDSM_scipy_blas.pyx``, Cython implementation from
``pydsm`` of ``simulateDSM()``, available if Cython is, providing a 70x
speed-up of DSM simulations.
* More documentation improvements and PEP8-related fixes.

**0.1-3**: Bugfixes, PEP8, more test coverage
* ``deltasigma/`` now supports ``FF`` topologies.
* ``deltasigma/`` now supports MIMO systems.
* ``pretty_lti()`` has been improved to provide the prettiest printing of LTIs
to date.
* Many documentation improvements and PEP8-related fixes.

**0.1-2**: Bugfixes, PEP8, DOC and most importantly a, g, b, c reshape.
* The a, g, b, c coefficients are now 1-dimensional.
* ``deltasigma/``: scalar ``b`` bugfix.
* ``deltasigma/``: fix bin width.
* ``deltasigma/``: add ``mround()``, round compatibly with MATLAB.
* ``deltasigma/``: add root multiplicity support in ``pretty_lti()``.
* ``deltasigma/``: bugfix in cplxpair for incoherent complex values.

**0.1-1**: Bugfix: most importantly fix ``realizeNTF_ct()``.
* ``deltasigma/``: Fixes for multi-timing, add unit tests for FB.
* ``deltasigma/``: Bugfix (reshape missing assignment), fix documentation formatting.
* ``deltasigma/``: Fix plot. Add unit test.
* ``deltasigma/``: Fix docstring.
* ``deltasigma/``: Use matplotlib's stem function. Enforce PEP8.
Add support for color 'None'.

0.1: Bugfix: missing ``copy()`` in ``mapABCD()``.

0.1rc4 : Multiple bugfixes. Py3k fixes. Test coverage up to 85+%.

0.1rc3 : Fix file-not-found issue with ````.

0.1rc2 : Fix travis and support.

0.1rc1 : Initial release
