Successive-approximation-register (SAR)
A type of analog-to-digital converter in which a single comparator successively makes large or small comparisons. Although the circuit design is simple because it does not require an amplifier, successive-approximation-register A/D converters are not amenable to high-speed operation.
 Analog/digital converter (A/D converter)
A circuit that converts an analog signal to a digital signal.
A type of analog/digital (A/D) converter in which a series of low-resolution conversion circuits, arranged in a pipeline, each determine a separate digit.
 Lowest power consumption
Specifications are as follows:Resolution: 10 bitsConversion rate: 50 MS/sProcess technology: 65-nm CMOSVoltage: 1.0 VPower consumption: 0.82 mWA/D converter surface area: 0.04 mm2
