A 2×40 W class D amplifier chip is realized in 0.6-μm BCDMOS technology, integrating two delta-sigma (ΔΣ) modulators and two full H-bridge switching output stages. Analog feedback from H-bridge outputs helps achieve 67-dB power supply rejection ratio, 0.001% total harmonic distortion, and 104-dB dynamic range. The modulator clock rate is 6 MHz, but dynamically adjusted quantizer hysteresis reduces output data rate to 450 kHz, helping achieve 88% power efficiency. At AM radio frequencies, the modulator output spectrum contains a single peak, but is otherwise tone-free, unlike conventional pulse-width modulation (PWM) modulators which contain energetic tones at harmonics of the PWM clock frequency.
