An asynchronous analog-to-digital converter (ADC) based on successive approximation is used to provide a high-speed (600-MS/s) and medium-resolution (6-bit) conversion. A high input bandwidth (>4 GHz) was achieved which allows its use in RF subsampling applications. By using asynchronous processing techniques, it avoids clocks at higher than the sample rate and speeds up a nonbinary successive approximation algorithm utilizing a series nonbinary capacitive ladder with digital radix calibration. The sample rate of 600 MS/s was achieved by time-interleaving two single ADCs, which were fabricated in a 0.13-mum standard digital CMOS process. The ADC achieves a peak SNDR of 34 dB, while only consuming an active area of 0.12mm2 and having power consumption of 5.3 mW
