In this paper a class-D audio amplifier for mobile applications is presented realized in a 0.14 μm CMOS technology tailored for mobile applications. The amplifier has a simple PDM-based digital interface for audio and control that requires only two pins and enables assembly in 9-bump WL-CSP. The complete audio path is discussed that consists of a Parser, Digital PWM controller, 1-bit DA-converters, analog feedback loop and the Class-D power stage. A reconfigurable gate driver is used that reduces quiescent current consumption and radiated emission.
