Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

ADCs and DACs are widely used in various signal-processing systems. With the increasing demand of ADCs and DACs in IoT, sensing, communication and controlling applications, the energy efficiency, sampling rate and conversion accuracy are required to be co-optimized.

This Special Issue seeks high-quality contributions that address latent challenges in ADCs and DACs with different architectures and contribute to the advancement of the state of the art in this field. Research papers detailing theoretical and experimental developments are welcome. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. High-resolution noise-shaping related ADC (NS SAR ADC, ∑Δ ADC, zoom ADC);
  2. High-resolution Nyquist ADC (the ENOB generally is no lower than 16 bits);
  3. High-speed ADCs, including both single-channel and TI types;
  4. Energy-efficient ADCs with the FoM result achieving the state-of-the-art level;
  5. High-performance analog circuits employing ADCs and DACs.

This paper presents a digital calibration method for a 10-bit noise-shaping Successive Approximation Register Analog to Digital Converter (SAR ADC). The proposed calibration method is inspired by its Data Weight Averaging (DWA) counterpart, but stays static, while achieving a similar Integral Nonlinearity (INL) and 1.3 dB better Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) in measurements without oversampling. This advantage in SNR holds until an Oversampling Ratio (OSR) of 2 for the proposed method, which also saves 50 % power. At a 1.2 V power supply, the ADC consumes a power of 70 µW at a conversion rate of 50 kHz. Fabricated using 55 nm Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) Metal-Oxide-Metal Capacitor (MOMCAP) technology, it occupies an active area of 370 µm × 350 µm, when achieving an INL of 0.3 Least Significant Bit (LSB) and an SNR of 66.9 dB at an OSR of 8.
