A Power Amplifier
A switched mode class- S power amplifier comprises a sigma-delta modulator with a digital input, a power switch connected to the output of the sigma-delta modulator providing the power amplifier output, and a feedback mechanism. The sigma-delta modulator has a high-pass transfer function and uses an offset switching frequency to remove an unwanted image over half of the switching frequency. The amplifier may have a filter to remove unwanted fold-over image. There may be at least two modulators arranged in parallel, and there may be a complex filter for constructively combining the modulator outputs.
