Paper Abstract

Currently, the most efficient technique to coarsely quantize the coefficients of redundant shift invariant signal expansions is a recursive method called ΣΔ modulation. However, the error of approximation resulting from this type of quantization is difficult to analyze rigorously. This is because a ΣΔ modulator is basically a nonlinear feedback system. With constant inputs, it was previously shown that the state vectors of ΣΔ modulators of a certain class appear to remain in a tile. In this paper, we show experimentally that this property remains valid with a class of time-varying inputs. We explain the importance of the tiling property for the error analysis of ΣΔ modulation.
