High-Order Analog Control of a Clocked Class-D Audio Amplifier with Global Feedback Using Z-Domain Methods

Document Thumbnail

The design of a clocked analog controlled pulse-width modulated class-D audio amplifier with global negative feedback is presented. The analog control loop is designed in the z-domain by modeling the comparator as a sampling operation. A method is presented to improve clip recovery and ensure stability during over-modulation. Loop gain is shaped to provide a high gain across the audio band, and ripple compensation is implemented to minimize the negative effect of ripple feedback. Experimental results are presented.
