This paper proposes analysis and synthesis methods of dynamic quantizers for linear feedback single input single output (SISO) systems with discrete-valued input in terms of invariant set analysis. First, this paper derives the quantizer analysis and synthesis conditions that clarify an optimal quantizer within the ellipsoidal invariant set analysis framework. In the case of minimum phase feedback systems, next, this paper presents that the structure of the proposed quantizer is also optimal in the sense that the quantizer gives an optimal output approximation property. Finally, this paper points out that the proposed design method can design a stable quantizer for non-minimum phase feedback systems through a numerical example.
