Abstract:A 6-bit 1.2 Gs/s non-calibrated flash ADC in a standard 45nm CMOS process, that achieves 0.45pJ/conv-step at full Nyquist bandwidth, is presented. Power efficient operation is achieved by a full optimization of amplifier blocks, and by innovations in the comparator and encoding stage. The performance of a non-calibrated flash ADC is directly related to device properties; a scaling analysis of our ADC in and across CMOS technologies gives insight into the excellent usability of 45nm technology for AD converter design.
