Title:
SIGNAL PROCESSING DEVICE, SIGNAL PROCESSING METHOD AND PROGRAM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/111703
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The present technology relates to a signal processing device, a signal processing method and a program which can improve the modulation rate of a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal. PWM modulation is performed in which: either one of 0 and 1, which is represented by each bit of a Pulse Density Modulation (PDM) signal obtained by PDM modulation of an audio signal, is converted to the longest pulse of the longest pulse width of a PWM signal of the same period as the PDM signal period; and the other of 0 and 1 of the PDM signal is converted to the shortest pulse of the shortest pulse width of a PWM signal at a position adjacent to the center of the PWM signal period. The technology is applicable to audio reproduction devices that reproduce audio signals.
