New tricks in Analog to Digital Conversion

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Prof. Michael P. Flynn

Host: Prof. Ian Galton

Although analog-to-digital converters have existed for more than 70 years, new ADC techniques continue to emerge. ADC architectures are evolving to deliver higher performance and also to take advantage of improved process performance. This presentation will discuss three new ADC architectures. A noise-shaping scheme shapes comparator noise and quantization noise in a SAR ADC. A bandpass ADC architecture enables efficient IF digitization. A new ring amplifier structure improves the resilience and efficiency of the ring amplifier architecture.
