The book's SPICE simulation examples are available at LTspice.  

A program for TI-89 calculators that takes R, C, and signal frequency as inputs and outputs the STF and NTF for 1st and 2nd order continuous-time modulators is here.  

Tutorials from Bad design, Cadence, Electric VLSI, LTspice, and Silvaco EDA.

Videos are located hereMATLAB examples are here, and Verilog-AMS examples are found here


Additional Homework Problems - These problems are made available, in addition to the textbook problems, but without written solutions (the solutions are not written up) since they would end up posted on the web.


*Chapter 9 material includes MATLAB scripts for determining data converter SNR from SPICE simulations, see MSD_MATLAB for comments.
