In the switched-capacitor circuits discussed in the MSD book all that sample

an analog signal for the first time also, effectively, pass the signal through a

Sinc response filter, Eq. (2.16), because of the S/H operation. So, for example,

if CF = 0 in Fig. 2.35, the output isnít just a delayed, by a half-clock cycle,

replica of the input [Eq. (2.47) with CF = 0] but rather a half-clock cycle

delayed S/H version of the input. We purposely donít include this response to

keep the equations tractable. Also, for many switched-capacitor circuits the

frequencies of interest are < fs so the Sinc response has little effect on the

circuitsí operation. But, of course, we should know itís there!
