Delta-sigma modulator and its application to switching amplification circuit

Image Number 15 for United States Patent #7248193.

A loop delay control circuit is provided between a comparator and a power switch stage. When the amplitude of an input signal is especially high, the loop delay control circuit secures an oscillation threshold value by setting a delay amount at a low value. On the other hand, when the amplitude of the input signal is not so high, the loop delay control circuit reduces an average switching rate by increasing the delay amount, but does not reduce the oscillation threshold value. This makes it possible to provide a delta-sigma modulator allowing realization of both (i) a high oscillation threshold value, i.e., high output power, and (ii) high power efficiency.
