The response time of a comparator involved in a time-pickoff circuit depends on the overdrive and the slope of its input signal, which is the main cause of a timing error. For eliminating the dependency, a time pickoff method employing an automatic gain control (AGC) circuit renders the amplitude of the input signal to the comparator to be uniform. However… (More)
