Zhang, Remy (author)
Bidirectional neural recording ICs faces the challenge of simultaneous stimulation and recording. The recording IC should endure large stimulation artifacts while capturing weak neural signals excited by the stimuli. The stimulation artifacts can be as large as hundreds of millivolts, which can saturate the recording front end. Conventional...

In chopper amplifiers, the interaction between the input signal and the chopper clock can cause intermodulation distortion (IMD). This is mainly due to finite amplifier bandwidth, which causes signal-dependent output spikes at the chopping transitions. Such chopper-induced IMD can be mitigated by the fill-in technique, which involves ping...

Zoom ADCs combine a coarse SAR ADC with a fine delta-sigma modulator (?SM) to efficiently obtain high energy efficiency and high dynamic range. This makes them well suited for use in various instrumentation and audio applications. However, zoom ADCs also have drawbacks. The use of over-ranging in their fine modulators may limit SNDR, large...

This paper presents a continuous-Time zoom ADC for audio applications. It combines a 4-bit noise-shaping coarse SAR ADC and a fine delta-sigma modulator with a tail-resistor linearized OTA for improved linearity, energy efficiency, and handling of out-of-band interferers compared to previous designs. In 160 nm CMOS, the prototype chip...

Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) used in high fidelity audio applications require high linearity and a wide dynamic range (&gt;100 dB). Moreover, for use in portable electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and hearing aids, these ADCs must also achieve high energy efficiency. This requirement of high linearity and high energy...

This article describes a discrete-time zoom analog-to-digital converter (ADC) intended for audio applications. It uses a coarse 5-bit SAR ADC in tandem with a fine third-order delta-sigma modulator (ΔΣM) to efficiently obtain a high dynamic range. To minimize its over-sampling ratio (OSR) and, thus, its digital power consumption, the...

This article presents a continuous-Time zoom analog to digital converter (ADC) for audio applications. It employs a high-speed asynchronous SAR ADC that dynamically updates the references of a continuous-Time delta-sigma modulator (CTDSM). Compared to previous switched-capacitor (SC) zoom ADCs, its input impedance is essentially resistive,...

The recent development of commercial phased array antennas for 5G at mm-wave frequencies (20 GHz to 60 GHz) introduces new challenges for radiation pattern characterization. Since these systems aim to employ active beamforming to steer the datastream to specific users, a single base station should be capable of deploying multiple beams...

This paper presents a dynamic zoom analog-to-digital converter for use in low-bandwidth (&amp;lt;1 kHz) instrumentation applications. It employs a high-speed asynchronous successive approximation register (SAR) ADC that dynamically updates the references of a fully differential &amp;#x0394; &amp;#x03A3; ADC. Compared to previous zoom ADCs,...

This work presents an architecture capable of digitizing every channel of an ultrasound transducer array independently and simultaneously. This feature is achieved by exploiting the frequency response of the piezoelectric transducer in order to save area and reduce to a minimum the required building blocks of the ADC. The transducer is used as...

A pipelined ADC core consumes 28mW with 60.3dB SNDR, 78dB SFDR and 76dB IMD3 is obtained. Combined with expander, extra 12dB DR is achieved with equal dynamic performance because companding takes place. Compared to conventional baseband interface, power dissipation is reduced by a factor of 3.3.
