A new unique conversion technique named the `Penta-Phase Integration' method, applied to a single-chip C/SUP 2/MOS 12-bit analog-to-digital converter designed for microprocessor system, is introduced and described. The newly developed device, fabricated with a standard metal gate CMOS process including an 8-channel multiplexer and TTL compatibility, has several features: unipolar- and ratiometric-conversion can be performed; conversion accuracy within /spl plusmn/0.05 percent of full scale over the -35/spl deg/C-+85/spl deg/C temperature range can be obtained; conversion time is 1.1 ms at a 20 MHz clock frequency, and the device can be operated with a single 5 V power supply and 6 mW power consumption at a 4 MHz clock frequency. The new technique essentially incorporated several methods which divide one conversion cycle into five-phases, accomplish minimization of the error caused by comparator response delay, provide several narrow flat phases to eliminate switching errors due to parasitic capacitance, and enable high clock frequency operation in digital circuits by utilizing C/SUP 2/MOS circuit technology and a synchronized configuration for counters.
