This paper describes a 10-bit 150 MS/s CMOS parallel pipeline ADC. The converter includes four parallel interleaved pipeline A/D converters with analog background calibration using adaptive signal processing, an extra channel, and mixed signal integrators that match the offsets and gains of time-interleaved ADC channels. With monolithic analog background calibration, the SNDR in all corner cases (SS, SF, FS, FF, and TT) and temperature between -40°C to 85°C is better than 57 dB. The power consumption is 1200 mW at a 3.0 V supply voltage. This work is achieved in a 0.6 μm CMOS process.
