This paper proposes a novel topology synthesis methodology for single-loop single-bit ∆Σ modulators. The goal is to explore all possible topologies and obtain the optimal topology under various design considerations, such as hardware complexity, modulator sensitivity and power consumption. We defined a generic modulator architecture that incorporates all possible feedback and feedforward signal paths, and we derived the symbolic Noise Transfer Function (NTF) and Signal Transfer Function (STF… CONTINUE READING
