Abstract or Summary
  • Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) has been used extensively for motor control, DC-AC converters, DC-DC converters and in audio applications. The conventional method of generating a pulse width modulated signal involves generating an accurate sawtooth or triangle wave using analog circuits. In CMOS, being analog circuit intensive puts extra constraints on the fabrication process used for manufacture, thus requiring a higher cost than digital CMOS. Delta-Sigma Modulation on the other hand is analog intensive, but requires only quality capacitor matching, which can be obtained with current digital CMOS processes. This thesis describes a method to generate a digital PWM with pulse dithering using a Delta-Sigma modulator. The Delta-Sigma modulator provides accuracy and allows the circuit to be implemented in a digital CMOS process, while the pulse dithering in the PWM spreads out harmonic noise generated from the PWM fundamental frequency.
