摘       要:
This talk presents our recent studies on advance ADC design techniques, including high-speed SAR ADC with sparkle code correction, and time-interleaved ADC with fast background timing skew calibration. First, I will talk about how to correct sparkle code due to comparator metastability in a high-speed SAR ADC. The proposed method is based on comparator decision time detection, and it can reduce the sparkle code rate by several orders of magnitude. Moreover, it can enhance the ADC resolution by 1-bit based on time-domain quantization. It also ensures robustness against PVT by devising a novel background calibration technique. Second, I will present a novel variance-based timing-skew calibration technique for time-interleaved SAR ADC. The proposed technique is able to accelerate the background convergence loop by over a thousand times, while achieving low hardware complexity and low power. Towards the end, I will also provide a review of other research activities in our group, including ultra-low-power amplifier design and hybrid noise-shaping SAR ADC.
