This paper presents an energy efficient successive-approximation-register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for biomedical applications. To reduce energy consumption, a bypass window technique is used to select switching sequences to skip several conversion steps when the signal is within a predefined small window. The power consumptions of the capacitive digital-to-analog converter (DAC), latch comparator, and digital control circuit of the proposed ADC are lower than those of a… CONTINUE READING
