Modulateur ΣΔ passe-haut et application dans la réception multistandards

Abstract : In this thesis, research has been carried out at various abstraction levels to optimize the High Pass(HP) ∆Σ modulator operation. A top-down approach is adopted to achieve this objective. Beginning with the RF receiver architecture, the newly created Fs/2 receiver is selected for its enhanced compatibility with HP ∆Σ modulator as compared to other state of the art receiver architectures namely zero-IF and low-IF receivers. After the receiver topology, the next level of design i-e ∆Σ modulator architecture is addressed. We propose a new second-order unity-STF architecture which is advantageous over other topologies in terms of complexity and performance. Since the second-order modulator is unable to provide the required performance, the cascaded or MASH structures for HP operation are explored. GMSCL(Generalized Multi-Stage Closed Loop) topology is chosen and a recently proposed technique is applied to linearise the feedback DAC. This technique eliminates the need of Dynamic Element Matching (DEM) and increases the dynamic range of the converter as well. Next, after a thorough comparative analysis, the best HP filter is chosen for this modulator. It has reduced power consumption, surface area and noise. Finally the proposed GMSCL HP architecture is validated in 65nm CMOS process. Much attention is given to the design of operational transconductance amplifier since it is the major building block of high pass filters and is the most power consuming element. The target applications are UMTS with 3.84MHz conversion band at 80dB dynamic range and WiMAX with 25MHz bandwidth at 52dB dynamic range.
