In this paper we present the design of a continuous time Σ∆-modulator in a 0.35 ??m technology. While using a 6-bit internal quantizer a total of only 15 comparators were implemented. The inherent loop delay is accounted for in the design by using a design strategy based on the Nyquist stability criterion and the vector gain margin. Measurement results show a Peak SNR of 82 dB and a dynamic range of 85 dB for a bandwidth of 1.5 MHz.
