A 13-b 40-MSamples/s CMOS pipelined folding ADC with background offset trimming

Two key concepts of pipelining and background offset trimming are applied to demonstrate a 13-b 40-MSamples/s CMOS analog-to-digital converter (ADC) based on the basic folding and interpolation architecture. Folding amplifier stages made of simple differential pairs are pipelined using distributed interstage track-and-holders. Background offset trimming… CONTINUE READING
