In this paper, we propose a continuous-time (CT) loop filter for minimizing the quantization noise in a Delta-Sigma (ΔΣ) modulator. We use the impulseinvariant transformation to obtain a CT loop filter from a discrete-time (DT) loop filter. We consider a nonideal CT ΔΣ modulator which is affected by the excess loop delay (ELD). The ELD is known to affect the stability and noise shaping performance of the CT ΔΣ modulator. Our objective is to design the CT modulator whose stability is not
