Infineon highlighted a high-performance 4GSamples/s 6bit flash analogue-digital converter ADC with 8bit output realised in a 0.13micron standard CMOS technology at the 2004 VLSI symposium in Hawaii. The outputs of the 255 small-area comparators are averaged by a fault tolerant thermometer-to-binary converter. The ADC also uses an on-chip low jitter VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) for clock provision and consumes 990mW at a single supply voltage of 1.5V.
