Excellent Semiwiki piece examines ST’s ADC breakthrough (FD-SOI, ISSCC)

Semiwiki blogger Paul McLellan has written an excellent piece on the FD-SOI analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that ST presented recently at ISSCC. (Read the article here.)  He notes, “This is a very high performance ADC and thus an example of complex high-precision analog design in FD-SOI.”  He concludes, “Together with the low-power capability of the 28nm CMOS UTBB FDSOI technology, ST could reach 10GS/s operation while keeping the power consumption at 32mW under 1V supply with a block that is just 0.009mm2.” Recommended technical read.
