Single-stage high-order delta–sigma modulators (DSMs) designed by methods with root loci inside the unit circle (RLiUC) can operate stably with full-scale input. The previously published RLiUC method uses a conservative approach to design the loop filter’s transfer function H(z) of a DSM, thus resulting in a modest SNR. In this brief, the pole–zero(More)
An open-loop class-D audio amplifier with the proposed adaptive-coefficient delta-sigma modulator (ACDSM) and low-EMI control method is implemented in a 0.18μm BCD process. Compared with conventional DSMs, the ACDSM simultaneously achieves a wide stable input range and high in-band noise suppression, resulting in a 20% increase of low-distortion(More)
