An algorithmic analog-to-digital conversion technique is described which is capable of achieving high-resolution conversion without the use of matched capacitors in an MOS technology. The exact integral multiplication of the signal required by the conversion is realized through an algorithmic circuit method which involves charge summing with an MOS integrator and exchange of capacitors. A first-order cancellation of the charge injection effect from MOS transistor switches is attained with a combination of differential circuit implementation and an optimum timing scheme. An experimental prototype has been fabricated with a standard 5-/spl mu/m n-well CMOS process. It achieves 12-bit resolution at a sampling rate of 8 kHz. The analog chip area measures 2400 mils/SUP 2/.
