Abstract: Described herein are various technologies relating to processing a coherent signal. A receiver is configured to receive an analog signal, and process the analog signal to generate an input analog signal. The input analog signal has been modulated according to a suitable modulation sequence. A coherent signal sampler coherently samples the modulation sequence, and the result of such sampling is in turn used to demodulate the input analog signal. The resultant signal is then passed to a sigma delta modulator, where it is converted to digital form.
