A 25GS/s 6b TI Binary Search ADC with Soft-Decision Selection in 65nm CMOS
Additional Document Info
2015 JSAP. A 25GS/s 8-way time-interleaved binary search ADC employs a novel soft-decision selection algorithm to improve metastability tolerance and relax T/H settling requirements. The T/H design is further relaxed with reduced loading from a new shared-input three comparator structure. Fabricated in GP 65nm CMOS, the ADC achieves 4.62-bits ENOB at Nyquist and 143 fJ/conv.-step FOM, while consuming 88mW and occupying 0.24mm2 core ADC area.
