MSc thesis project proposal

Digital-input Class-D audio amplifier

Digital input Class-D audio amplifiers offer many advantages over their analog counterparts such as more flexibility, EMI immunity and smaller chip area. In these amplifiers, usually an analog-to-digital or digital-to-analog converter is needed which also must deliver high SNR and linearity. In this project, new techniques will be explored to enhance these performance.



The following project activities are expected:

·         Comprehensive literature study

·         System-level behaviour model

·         Transistor-level circuit design

·         A tapeout is highly encouraged

·         Thesis writing


You are an ambitious master student with good analog circuit design knowledge and high motivation. You should have obtained good grades from the following courses: Measurement and instrumentation, Analog circuit design fundamentals, CMOS I/II, Power conversion in CMOS technology.
