dc.description.abstract This thesis concerns discrete-time (DT) bandpass (BP) ΔΣ modulators targeted for intermediate frequency (IF) analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion in radio receivers. The receiver architecture adopted has to be capable of operating with different radio frequencies, channel bandwidths, and modulation techniques. This is necessary in order to achieve an extensive operating area and the possibility of utilizing a local mobile phone standard or a standard suitable for a specific service. The digital IF receiver is a good choice for a multi-mode and multi-band mobile phone receiver, because the signal demodulation and channel filtering are performed in the digital domain. This increases the flexibility of the receiver and relieves the design of the baseband part, but an A/D conversion with high dynamic range and low power dissipation is required. BP ΔΣ modulators are capable of converting a high-frequency narrow band signal and are therefore suitable for signal digitization in an IF receiver. First, the theory of BP ΔΣ modulators is introduced. It has been determined that resonators are the most critical circuit blocks in the implementation of a high performance BP ΔΣ modulator. Different DT resonator topologies are studied and a double-delay (DD) resonator is found to be the best candidate for a high quality resonator. A new DD switched-capacitor (SC) resonator structure has been designed. Furthermore, two evolution versions of the designed SC resonator are presented and their nonidealities are analyzed. The three designed DD SC resonator structures are a main point of the thesis, together with the experimental results. Five different DT BP ΔΣ modulator circuit structures have been implemented and measured. All three of the designed SC resonators are used in the implemented circuits. The experimental work consists of both single-bit and multi-bit structures, as well as both single-loop and cascade architectures. The circuits have been implemented with a 0.35 μm (Bi)CMOS technology and operate with a 3.0 V supply. The measured maximum signal-to-noise-and-distortion ratios (SNDRs) are 78 dB over 270 kHz (GSM), 75 dB over 1.25 MHz (IS-95), 69 dB over 1.762 MHz (DECT), and 48 dB over 3.84 MHz (WCDMA) bandwidths using a 60 MHz IF signal. en
