Introduction

Pipelined A/D converters (ADCs) have been used since the mid 1980s [13] to enable wideband digitization at moderate-to-high resolutions of approximately 8–14 effective bits. In the early days of its commercial adoption, the pipelined architecture was primarily used to digitize video signals at approximately 20 MS/s and 10 bits of resolution [4]. At that time, with CMOS feature sizes of several microns, this level of performance was difficult to achieve with competing architectures. ...
