sigma-delta converter

A circuit that generates a 1-bit pulse density modulated (PDM) signal from analog input. It creates fixed-width pulses in relation to the amplitude of the analog waveform. As the wave amplitude rises, 1's are produced. As it falls, 0's result. If it remains neutral, alternating 01's are created. See PDM and SACD.
