Speaker: Prof. Pieter Harpe from TU Eindhoven (NL)
Title: Advanced SAR ADCs – efficiency, accuracy, calibration and references
Abstract: This lecture will discuss advanced techniques that enabled substantial performance improvement of SAR ADCs in recent years. After a brief introduction on SAR ADCs, a short overview of the recent trends will be given. Then, the presentation will show four design examples with different targets. The first topic deals with minimizing power consumption. The second and third design aim to increase accuracy by means of linearization, noise reduction techniques, and calibration. Finally, the last part describes an efficient method to co-integrate the reference buffer with the SAR ADC.
Short bio: Prof. Harpe is steadily producing world-class results in the field of CMOS SAR ADCs, with many outstanding ICs presented at the ISSCC and in JSSC. SAR ADCs are well-known to provide a great performance at reduced power consumption.
