A current-mode analog-to-digital converter based on a current copier circuit with a constant bias current that is independent of the input signals. A second-order incremental .SIGMA.-.DELTA. conversion configuration is implemented. An array of such analog-to-digital converters can be integrated onto the focal plane of an imaging sensor array to achieve column-wise parallel analog-to-digital conversion.
