Contrôle et intégration d’amplificateurs de classe D à commande numérique pour la téléphonie mobile

Abstract : The integration of many complex functions in embedded systems such as mobile phones, led to optimize energy consumption to maintain operational autonomy. Concerning the chain of sound reproduction, consumption was reduced by the use of analog Class D amplifiers, but the nature of the digital audio source requires a digital to analog converter further upstream. The high consumption of the ADC and the quality of sound reproduction of the amplifier are currently the main limitations of this approach. This research, conducted in four phases, thus aims to make improvements and propose new architectures to reduce these limitations. Regarding the Class D amplifier analog control loop an analog modulator based on a self-oscillating hysteresis has been developed to reduce consumption and increase its quality of reproduction. This study was validated by the realization of a circuit in CMOS 130 nm. The ability to control the class D amplifier directly from a digital control signal was then considered. The train of pulses needed to control the power stage is obtained by digital modulation of the audio source. The use of open-loop output stage, however, does not produce an audio signal output insensitive to variations in the diet. A local analog servo around the power stage is required. Realization in CMOS 130 nm of this architecture has allowed the validation studies (operation, stability, bandwidth, modeling non-linear elements ,...). The interface between the digital modulator and the analog part is very sensitive to disturbance. A digital control overall Class D amplifier with digital control has been studied to control the interface. A prototype of this control is in progress.
