A 31 mW, 10-bit 100-MS/s pipelined analog-to-digital converter (ADC), which alleviates the memory effect occurring in the opamp-sharing technique, and automatically corrects the current error of the V/I converter, has been developed. The proposed ADC achieves low-power consumption, high noise immunity, and has a small area, by employing an input-swapped opamp-sharing technique that switches the summing node in an multiplying digital-to-analog converter and a V/I converter with a process, supply voltage, and temperature condition detector. The ADC shows a differential nonlinearity of less than 0.48 LSB, and an integral nonlinearity of less than 0.95 LSB. Also, an signal-to-noise-and- distortion ratio of 56.2 dB is measured with a 1 MHz input frequency. This has been implemented in a 0.18-μm CMOS process, and occupies 1.6 ×0.8 mm2 of active area.
