The paper presents a reduced ADC architecture obtained by introducing the subranging technique into the scheme of a caliper AD converter. This last converter was already proposed as an application of a theory which describes the comparison between scales having the steps prime each other. This converter architecture drastically reduces the number of the required resistors for a full flash realization. The introduction of the subranging technique into the caliper ADC here presented reduces also the number of the required comparators. The result is a very compact architecture. The paper describes a first intention architecture based on ideal components. An example of SPICE simulation is given.

Abstract

The paper presents a reduced ADC architecture obtained by introducing the subranging technique into the scheme of a caliper AD converter. This last converter was already proposed as an application of a theory which describes the comparison between scales having the steps prime each other. This converter architecture drastically reduces the number of the required resistors for a full flash realization. The introduction of the subranging technique into the caliper ADC here presented reduces also the number of the required comparators. The result is a very compact architecture. The paper describes a first intention architecture based on ideal components. An example of SPICE simulation is given.
