Abstract
An innovative ADC architecture known as Parallel Time Interleaved Multi-bit Feedback (PTIMF) has been invented by Prof. Ray Siferd of Wright State University and Systran Federal Corp. The PTIMF architecture offers several advantages over existing parallelDelta-Sigma ADC architectures, such as, Reduced oversampling ratios (OSR), Less hardware intensive implementation, Reduced filtering requirements, etc. In addition, the PTIMF architecture facilitates the design of ADCs with the following attributes: HighSpeed, High Resolution, Increased Bandwidth, and Reduced power consumption. The most beneficial feature of the PTIMF architecture is scalability and its applicability to any fabrication process. The number of channels and/or the OSR may be scaled tofacilitate the required resolution (12-bit, 16-bit, 18-bit, 20-bit, 24-bit, etc.) and the bandwidth.Dr. Cerny of SN/AFRL and his colleagues have invented a new, patented process from known as
