Ahmed Mohamed Abdelatty Ali, Paritosh Bhoraskar, Huseyin Dinc, Andrew Stacy Morgan: Background estimation of comparator offset of an analog-to-digital converter. ANALOG DEVICES, Patent Capital Group, March 21, 2017: US09602121

A pipeline analog-to-digital converter (ADC) converts an analog input signal over several stages, where a stage generates a residue for the subsequent stage to digitize. The residue is generated by coarsely quantizing the analog input signal to generate a digital code, which is used to reconstruct t ...
