Digital delta-sigma modulators (DDSMs) applied in fractional-N frequency synthesizers suffer from spurious tones which undermine the synthesizer's spectral purity. We propose a solution featuring no hardware overhead while achieving equivalent spur elimination effect as using LFSR-dithering. This method can be implemented on MASH and single-loop DDSMs of 3rd- and 2nd-order.
