The design of a low-power, low-voltage, 12-b 8-kHz bandwidth ΣΔ modulator for high-quality voice that consumes only 0.34 mW at 1.95 V supply is described. The modulator employs a special architecture in which a third-order modulator is stabilized by a local feedback loop around each integrator. Unlike multistage ΣΔ modulators, this architecture is very tolerant to the modest dc gain of low voltage op-amps. The architecture, together with special circuit techniques, permits a low-voltage switched capacitor implementation at 1.95 V-3.3 V supply using standard 1.2-μm CMOS technology
