This paper presents the design and implementation of a low power, low voltage, continuous time delta sigma modulator for audio band in 90 nm CMOS technology. A VCO-based integrator and quantizer are used. Inherent dynamic element matching (DEM) of the quantizer eliminates the need for explicit DEM logic which results in a short excess-delay and power saving. Simulation results show that the modulator achieves 78 dB SNDR and 87 dB SNR in a 20 kHz input bandwidth and dissipates 106 μW from 1 V supply. The power consumption for different parts is discussed.
