Abstract

This paper presents a 16-channel time-interleaved 5-bit asynchronous SAR ADC for UWB radios. It proposes 400aF unit capacitors, offset calibration, a self-resetting comparator and a distributed clock divider to optimize the performance. The prototype in 90nm CMOS occupies only 0.11mm2 including decoupling capacitors. Two relevant modes for UWB are supported: 0.5GS/s at 0.75V supply, and 1GS/s at 1V supply with 0.47mW and 1.6mW power consumption respectively. With an ENOB of 4.7 and 4.8bit, this leads to energy efficiencies of 36 and 57fJ/conversion-step. Compared to prior-art, state-of-the-art efficiency is achieved without relying on complex calibration schemes.
