A high speed comparator based on a high DC-gain folded-cascode amplifier is presented. Four switches rearrange the structure to speed up the comparison process and prevent kickback noise with a simple set of controlling signals. The circuit is a rail-to-rail folded-cascode amplifier during reset/evaluation period which transforms into two back-to-back inverters during the latch period to speed up the settling. The reset and the evaluation sequences are merged due to the special structure… CONTINUE READING
