IMEC sets new record for 9bit, 50 MSamples/s SAR ADC with a figure of merit of 65 fJ News & Analysis 9/28/2007 Post a comment An ultra-low power (0.7 mW), high-speed (50 MSamples/s) analog to digital converter (ADC), presented by IMEC at this year's ISSCC conference, achieves a figure of merit of 65 fJ per conversion step. This is 2.5 times better than the best ADC of this kind ever reported in research papers and an order of magnitude better than the best commercially available ADC IP blocks in 90nm CMOS.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
