A band-pass delta-sigma modulator (BPDSM) is a key building block to implement a digital intermediate frequency (IF) receiver in a wireless communication system. This paper proposes a time-interleaved (TI) switched-capacitor (SC) BPDSM architecture that consists of 5-stage TI blocks with recursive loop. The proposed TI BPDSM provides reduction in the clock frequency requirement by a factor of 5 and relaxes the settling time requirement to one-fourth of conventional approach. The test chip was designed and fabricated for a 30-MHz IF system with a 0.35-μm CMOS process. The measured peak SNR for a 200-kHz bandwidth is 63 dB while dissipating 75 mW from a 3.3-V supply and occupying 1.3 mm2.
