An area-efficient approach to the design of very-large time constants in switched-capacitor integrators

TLDR
Calculations and measurements show that in the T-cell integrator, capacitive area is conveniently traded off against amplifier specifications as open-loop and slew rate; power consumption is not necessarily compromised by these specifications.

Micropower high-performance SC building block for integrated low-level signal processing

A switched-capacitor instrumentation amplifier which uses correlated-double sampling to reduce the amplifier offset is discussed. Additional offset caused by clock-related charge injection is
