A fourth-order continuous-time RF bandpass ΔΣ ADC has been fabricated in 40 nm CMOS for fs/4 operation around a 2.22 GHz central frequency. A complete system has been implemented on the test chip including the ADC core, the fractional-N PLL with clock generation network, and the digital decimation filters and downconversion (DFD). The quantizers of the ADC are six times interleaved enabling a polyphase structure for the DFD and relaxing clock frequency requirements. This quantization scheme realizes a sampling rate of 8.88 GS/s which is the highest sampling speed for RF bandpass ΔΣ ADCs reported in standard CMOS to date enabling high oversampling ratios for RF digitization without compromising power-efficient implementation of the DFD. Measurements show that the ADC achieves a dynamic range of 48 dB in a band of 80 MHz with an IIP3 of 1 dBm.
