Systematic Figure of Merit Computation for the Design of Pipeline ADC

L. Barrandon, S. Crand, D. Houzet

The emerging concept of SoC-AMS leads to research new top-down methodologies to aid systems designers in sizing analog and mixed devices. This work applies this idea to the high-level optimization of pipeline ADC. Considering a given technology, it consists in comparing different configurations according to their imperfections and their architectures without FFT computation or time-consuming simulations. The final selection is based on a figure of merit.
