A 0.34-571nW All-Dynamic Versatile Sensor Interface for Temperature, Capacitance, and Resistance Sensing

This paper presents an ultra-low power versatile temperature/capacitive/resistive sensor interface. The proposed highly versatile sensor interface can support a wide variety of different sensors. Most importantly, the entire sensor interface platform consumes only dynamic power, making the power consumption scales inherently and efficiently with the measurement rate and resolution, which is crucial to enable the intelligent on-chip control (instincts) for Phoenix. When comparing this prototype with prior arts, it is the only work that provides 3 sensing modes combined with adaptive power versus measurement rate and resolution. Besides, state-of-the-art energy efficiency are achieved for all the sensing modes, with a minimum power down to only 0.34nW.

Low-power SAR ADCs: trends, examples and future

With the development of mobile devices and Internet-of-Things, the demand for low-power circuits has been growing rapidly. Electronics that used to consume milli-Watts of power may now consume as little as a few nano-Watt, thanks to improvements in technology and design. In this paper, we look at one of the key building blocks of electronic circuits: the Analog-to-Digital Converter or ADC. First, we review the progress of low-power ADCs over the years in terms of performance and limitations, and we describe approaches how to further advance the state of the art. Various examples will be shown to illustrate the diversity of techniques and ideas within the field, and we give an outlook to the future.
