## Implementation of a micro power 15-bit floating-point' A/D converter

### In: International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, 1996, p. 247-252

Micro power A/D converter are required for power sensitive, battery-operated equipment such as hearing aids. This paper overviews the principles of the 15-bit floating point' converter and presents its implementation in a low voltage 2 μm CMOS technology. The die area is 1.4 by 1.4 mm and the power consumption 50 μW at ±1.25 V and 16 kHz sampling frequency. Measurement showed that the... More
