## Pipeline digital correction solve the offset of comparator, but not for other error

Hi, pipeline digital correction solves some offset of comparator, but it can't correct gain error, right? For example, for a 10 bit adc, the first stage is 1.5 bit stage, the idea gain of this stage should be 2, but the actual gain is 1.9. Even with the help of digital correction, it can not correct the gain error? right? How to understand

## Offset of dynamic comparators

Hello all; In pipeline ADCs where charge distribution dynamic comparators are used, the design of the different comparators is the same, they are only fed with different references to make them get exercised at different input voltage values.....When applying a ramp to the ADC each comparator exhibits a certain value of (...)

## Can somebody help me in designing dynamic comparator for pipeline ADC

hi i am a beginner in analog circuit design.. I am designing a dynamic comparator for pipeline ADC in 90nm Cmos technology shown in the figure.. 1.8V supply voltage(Vcm=0.9V).. This dynamic comparator is to be designed for 2.5 bits flash sub-ADC.. I have several questions.. 1) How to choose the value of Vrn and Vrp? 2) How to select (...)

## why use a comparator before the front end S/H circuit in pipeline ADC

this is a 10bit pipeline adc, it has a front end sampling hold circuit which followed by 8 stages of MDACs, each stage is 1.5bit, the last stage is a 2bit flash adc. but in front end s/h circuit, there is a 1bit comparator, it output to digital error correction, why they use the comparator , how this works in digital correction?

## Digital Error Correction in a 1.5 Bit Pipeline ADC

I understand that digital error correction for a pipeline ADC which is based on 1.5 bit per stage is used in order to correct offsets from comparator, opamp, etc. My question is, how does it actually correct this offset? What is the exact mechanism that allows you to be able to tolerate a larger comparator offset just because you have (...)

## regarding 1.5 bit/stage pipeline adc

I don't think the ADC should drive a 50ohm resistor. Maybe, you mean that the ADC should have a 50ohm input termination... Just do a search on the IEEExplore website or google for "pipeline ADC" and you will find tons of references.

## How to design a comparator for 10bits, 50M/s Pipeline ADC?

Hi all: I am design a 10bits, 50M/s pipeline ADC, but I do not konw how to design a comparator. Would you give me some advices? for example, how to design the pre-amplifier, what's the value of the bandwidth and gain of the pre-amplifier? how to design the latch? I beg your help! thanx!!

## problem with the output of ADC when sampling rate is high

There looks to be a lot of glitching in the logic outputs and my first guess would be that you are overclocking the layers of decision logic and catching an unsettled comparator output, or something like that. If this is a pipeline with multiple layers of add & carry, that might add up to more than 30nS setup time if you add in the analog por

## comparator in the 1st stage of a 14bit pipeline adc

our project is to design a 14bit 80M pipeline adc.The first stage is 4bit(1 bit redundancy) followed by 8 stages of 1.5bit/stage.the decision level of 1.5bit/stage is ?Vref/4,which can tolerated ?Vref/4(or ?Vref/2) offset.I dont know how people think up this method. and i dont know what are the first stage decision levels either. Could someone ex

hi there, Does anyone know why is dynamic comparator (rather than preamp+latch) frequently used in pipeline ADC design? what is the advantage of it compared to other structures?

Hi, there, As is well known, the comparators in the sub-ADCs of a 1.5b/stage pipeline ADC can tolerate offset error as large as Vref/4, but why is it that ? can someone explain in more detail or post some links here, thanks! Added after 16 minutes: AND I also want to know which is the FIRST paper

## how to decide the value of capacitor in SHA pipeline ADC?

Dear everyone.. I'm undergraduated students.. my final research project is pipeline ADC.. I finished op amp and comparator.. now I want to start design a switch capacitor circuit.. but I have no idea how to decide the value (capacitance) of capacitor in SHA circuit.. I read it, that the capacitor value will be compared.. so is there an

## Pipeline ADC dynamic comparator latch signal

Thank you so much, guy. Now, I just use early latch signal to my sub-ADC, and the error caused by kick-back noise has almost no effect on my Sha. However, are these methods common in commercial pipeline ADC design? Such as early latch signal, parallel path?

## two questions need help-pipeline adc design, sc-cmfb circuit

## Some doubts on pipeline adc

Hi guys, I have a question with regards to the parameters such as comparator offset, gain, capacitor mismatch etc.. in a given stage of pipeline adc. In general how much variation can you expect for the above paramters in terms of percentage with increase or decrease in temperature and ageing for 0.18um technology. Assume that the adc is working

## How to make each stage of pipeline ADC behave similarly?

Hi guys, I would like to know how to make each stage of pipeline behave similarily as close to each other as possible. I mean the multiplication factor of residue in each stage should be nearly same among all stage of pipeline. Its doesnt matter if there are large errors in each stage but the error factors like the comparator offset (...)

## How to avoid unwanted comparator switching of flash ADC comparator?

high speed ADC 1. pipeline 2. fold 3. flash 300MHz flash A/D can use "switch comparator" use switch Cap .. and clock will do auto zero (cancel offset ...) comparator use "preamp + latch " for high speed signal you cn find many paper talk about this A/D

hi,guys I am confused that why makes addtion of alll stages' digital output can correct the error such as comparator's offset introduced. Expecting your comments, thank you very much. san

## Recommend the best comparator for ADC and DAC design

It depends on what architectures you chose (pipeline, full-flash, subrange,SAR,etc.), you must specify the one.

## comparator in a 40MB,10Bit pipeline ADC

how do i define the spec of the comparator used in 1.8V 40MB 10Bit pipeline ADC stage(CMOS process)? like 1.resolution 2.propagation delay one thing that confuses me is, how do i know my comparator is "fast enough"? check Bode plot for BW ,or just run a transient simulation by input a step signal? Added after 17 m

## What's the maximum tolerable offset, without digital error correction, in comparator?

Dear Suhas, I think that it depends on the number of bits you resolve in each stage of the pipeline. Vref/4 would apply to about 2 bits per stage, if I am not wrong. Also, the residue gain is also critical in defining the required offset.

You first model your system from top level to sub would contain...comparators....S/H...m-DAC...dig correction blocks etc....now just write the routines for each of them....this routine basically contain the IP-OP relation-ship of the blocks (in voltage domain)....just like C-prog.... Once this is done you call them in proper manner..

## testbed setup for INL,DNL,SNDR,FFT...

im not quite sure abt all this testbed(cct) for testing pipeline ADC performance such INL,DNL,SNDR & FFT using Cadence. Do anyone have some testbench cct for these performance metrics ? i knw it need to be done in transient.. but how about testbed signals ???

## Dynamic comparator design for pipeline ADC

Now I design dynamic comparator for pipeline ADC. But there are some is my design parameter. Vdd = 3.3V (CM = 1.65V) Vref+ = 1.9 V Vref- = 1.4 V Vin+ - Vin- ; ramp signal from -3.3V to 3.3V 1. This comparater generates 1/4Vref threshold voltage if I design W2/W1=0.25.

## Comparator accuracy in pipelined ADC

that's the spirit of pipeline ADC. if the residue is not amplified after the subtraction, ur next stage need the same accuracy as ur previous stage.

For a flash AD (pipeline AD), I need a reference voltage 1.25V and 1.75V which is connected to sample/Hold circuit (comparator). Because of the clock feedthrough and charge injection of the sampling switch, the reference voltage is changed. So I add a buffer connected opamp to isolate it. The buffer input is i.25 and 1.75(volt). I
