||Continuous-time sigma-delta modulator can be applied to wireless communications, photography and MP3 player. Portable electronics products became mainstream the design of a low power consumption analog circuit become important. Therefore, this paper presents a low power consumption continuous-time sigma-delta modulator.|
The low-power continuous-time sigma-delta modulator includes one-bit quantizer and a third-order loop filter consisting of resistor-capacitor integrators. Through the modified Z-transform, the discrete time loop filter design is transformed to the continuous time loop filter design.
The proposed sigma-delta modulator used TSMC 0.18μm CMOS 1P6M standard process, and its supply voltage is 1V, oversampling ratio is 32, bandwidth is 200 KHz, effective number is 13bit, power consumption is 1.5mW.
Keywords: GSM, low power consumption, low power supply, continuous-time, sigma-delta modulator.
