Nonlinear behaviors of bandpass sigma delta modulators with stable system matrices

By Charlotte Yuk-Fan Ho, Bingo Wing-Kuen Ling, Joshua D Reiss and Xinghuo Yu


It has been established that a class of bandpass sigma-delta modulators may exhibit state space dynamics which are represented by elliptical or fractal patterns confined within trapezoidal regions when the system matrices are marginally stable. In this brief, it is found that fractal or irregular chaotic patterns may also be exhibited in the phase plane when the system matrices are strictly stabl
