This chapter addresses ADCs for IoT nodes, which are needed to digitize sensor information before processing, storage or wireless transmission. ADCs are also required for the radio communication channel. This chapter focusses on successive approximation (SAR) ADCs, a popular architecture for IoT thanks to their high power-efficiency. After deriving requirements for IoT, the design basics of SAR ADCs are discussed, followed by various design examples to illustrate key enabling techniques.
