A new calibration technique for time-interleaved analog-to-digital converters is proposed, based on Hermitianity-preserving complex Taylor approximations of the frequency response of the correction filters. Calibration is interpreted as approximating these filters with linear combinations of base filters obtained by the proposed Taylor expansion. Known calibration techniques are reinterpreted in...

This brief describes a low-power current-mode voltage reference based on subthreshold transistors. A novel circuit configuration together with a high-order temperature compensation scheme allow this voltage reference to operate with a supply voltage down to 0.4 V over a large temperature range (from -40 °C to 130 °C). The circuit, which is fabricated with a standard 0.18-... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This brief presents a hybrid CMOS millimeter-wave single-pole single-throw (SPST) switch. This newly invented hybrid structure demonstrates better tradeoffs between insertion loss and isolation compared to conventional distributed structures. The performance benefits are analyzed in detail and validated by both simulation and measurement results. Additionally, the chip area is conserved by using... Read more on IEEE Xplore
