In this paper, an improved algorithm for natural sampling is presented that is suitable for digitally controlled fixed frequency PWM modulators. With only 5 MAC operations, 4 multiplications, and 2 additions, the algorithm calculates both switching times for double-sided 3-level PWM, and offers more than 100 dB between signal and PWM related distortion products for high fidelity audio applications. These features compare well with results published [2-6]. The algorithm can be combined with a noise shaped local feedback for quantized pulse lengths and the digital modulator can be integrated into a global feedback loop.
