Abstract: This paper presents an ultra low power 6 bit Flash ADC designed in 180 nm CMOS technology for ultra low power applications. The design uses inverter based comparators to reduce the silicon area and power requirement. A novel clock delaying technique is used to power on the three stages of the comparator which work in series. This reduces the power consumption and increases speed of operation. Fat tree architecture is used to design the digital encoder. The power supply used for the design is 0.5 V and the sampling rate is 50 MS/s. The design consumes ultra low power of 600 ?W and spans a very small area of 0.164 mm2. In literature this is found to be the lowest for 6 bit ADCs in 180 nm with sampling frequency of 5 MS/s or above. The SNDR remains above 31.5 dB in the whole input frequency range of 0 to 25 MHz. The ADC has maximum DNL of 0.85 LSB and maximum INL of 1 LSB. The FOM of the ADC is found to be 0.39 pJ/conv. � 2012 IEEE.
