Abstract

The goal of this project was to design a fully differential Cyclic Analog-to-Digital Converter, and test the functionality of its major blocks. The converter is an integrated circuit designed for the CMOS 0.18 micron fabrication process. It is self-calibrating and performs 1 million samples per second. Design techniques used include switched capacitor networks, differential amplifier, replica biasing, and calibration in the off-chip digital domain. The project is sponsored by the New England Center for Analog and Mixed Signal Design (NECAMSID).
