6-bit low power Semi-Flash ADC for Data Acquisition System

Objective :
Implementation of 6-bit Semi-Flash ADC with low power consumption in 180nm technology

EDA Tools : Electric, LT

Semi-Flash ADC is implemented by taking advantage of two commonly used ADCs- Flash ADC used for high speed and SAR ADC used for low power consumption. With reduction in number of comparators used, Semi-Flash ADC shows considerable amount of reduction in power consumption. Such low power ADCs are very useful in Data Acquisition System that collect information to document or analyze some phenomenon.
