In this paper, we describe a cyclic ADC to adopt the comparator-based switched-capacitor (CBSC) technique, for the first time, so as to compensate for the technology scaling and reduce power consumption by eliminating the need for high gain opamps. A boosted preset voltage is also introduced to improve the conversion rate without consuming more power. The(More)
This paper proposes a low-power referenceless clock and data recovery (CDR) circuit for biomedical devices or sensor applications. Its power consumption is reduced by adopting clock-edge modulation technique and using a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) based on a relaxation oscillator. Clock-edge modulation eliminates the need for an external reference(More)
—This brief proposes an amplitude shift keying (ASK) demodulator that uses switched-capacitor differentiators to make it compliant with the very high bit rate amendment to the ISO/IEC 14443 standard for contactless smart card applications. These differentiators detect transitions in modulated ASK signals with a carrier frequency of 13.56 MHz at data rates(More)
We present a sensor readout integrated circuit for the CNT bio-sensor array, the heart of which is our low-power current-input continuous-time ΔΣ modulator that is capable of dynamic range extension. Experimental results show that the prototype chip, designed and fabricated in 0.18μm CMOS process, achieves a dynamic range of 87.746dB and has(More)
