Two-step CMOS AID Converter

The ADC architecture and timing diagram are shown in Figure 1. The converter consists of a 7b coarse flash stage, a 7b digital-to-analog converter (DAC), a subtractor. and a 6b fine flash stage. One-of-n decoders and ROhIs are used to convert the thermometer code outputs ofthe two flash stages to binarydata, that is thencorrecteddigitally to produce the… CONTINUE READING
