Can anybody please suggest me how to implement this block diagram using Capacitors? I tried but messed up because when I try with one gain coefficient, it changes the already calculated capacitance for other branch.

I have a question about anti-aliasing filter (maybe stupid question)
If the sampling frequency is very high comparing to the input signal frequency, basically there is no aliasing, right?
A delta-sigma adc is an oversampling adc, so the sampling frequency is high depending on OSR.

The motive for posing this questions arises from a difference of analysis between a colleague and myself.
Our general environment is in the construction of an analog front end which takes in signals to an instrumentation amp in the low microvolt range. followed by a gain stage, which then feeds a 24 bit delta sigma converter.

Hardly possible, in general. With the exception of oversampling adc (sigma-delta type) that mostly have a high order low-pass filter built in. They can be operated with only a simple low-pass filter removing input signal components above half

1. The output is a binary digital signal, which is normally represented by 0s and 1s. The actual level depends upon the logic being used.
2. The output of the decimator is indeed a digital signal.

Okay, here's the deal:
1) Learn about coherent sampling. You should use sampling frequencies and input frequencies that are coherent. Meaning that the input frequency should always be exactly on a bin that is computed by FFT to get the most accurate performance measurement. There's more to it but this is an intuitive explanation. If you get this p

While delta-sigma or sigma-delta is in essence an averaging process the oversampling is not the only thing responsible for the ENOB.
For example only OSR improves the number ob bits from n to ENOB=n+0.5*log2(OSR). Now this means that for a 5-bit gaing OSR of 1024 is needed.
