In this paper, we present two designs for CMOS comparators: one which is targeted for high-speed applications and another for low-power applications. Additionally, we present hierarchical pipelined comparators which can be optimized for delay, area, or power consumption by using either design in different stages. Simulation results for our fastest… CONTINUE READING
