Sammanfattning

This paper presents a 3rd-order, 3-bit continuous time (CT) Delta-Sigma modulator for an LTE radio receiver. By adopting a return-to-zero (RZ) pulse in the innermost DAC, the modulator shows a reduced sensitivity to loop-delay variations, and the additional loop delay compensation usually needed in CT modulators can be omitted. The modulator has been implemented in a 65nm CMOS process, where it occupies an area of 0.2mmx0.4mm. It achieves an SNR of 71dB and an SNDR of 69dB over a 9MHz bandwidth with an oversampling ratio of 16. Power consumption is 7.5mW from a 1.2V supply, for a figure-of-merit of 181fJ/conversion.
