This paper investigates time-interleaved SAR and time-interleaved slope converters, targeting low-power, low-resolution, high-speed applications. Fundamentally, these two architectures can be relatively power-efficient as compared to other architectures. At the same time, complex calibration schemes are not required thanks to their inherent accuracy. The architectures are examined and compared, circuit implementations and measurement results are discussed and an outlook to the future will be given.
