— We present a high-speed low-power 8-channel com-parator tailored for the application of sampling antenna signals in a cross-correlator system for space-borne synthetic aperture radiometer instruments. Features like clock return path, per-channel offset calibration and bias current tuning make the comparator adaptable and gives the possibility to adjust(More)
