Abstract [en]

This paper presents an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) dedicated to neural recording systems. By using two continuous-time incremental sigma-delta ADCs in a pipeline configuration, the proposed ADC can achieve high-resolution without sacrificing the conversion rate. This two-step architecture is also power-efficient, as the resolution requirement for the incremental sigma-delta ADC in each step is significantly relaxed. To further enhance the power efficiency, a class-AB output stage and a dynamic summing comparator are used to implement the sigma-delta modulators. A prototype chip, designed and fabricated in a standard 0.18 µm CMOS process, validates the proposed ADC architecture. Measurement results show that the ADC achieves a peak signal-to-noise-plus-distortion ratio of 75.9 dB over a 4 kHz bandwidth; the power consumption is 34.8 µW, which corresponds to a figure-of-merit of 0.85 pJ/conv.
