Abstract: An on-chip ADC for readout circuit (ROIC) of microcantilever-based infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) is presented. Pipeline structure is employed for power and area efficiency. Multi-bit first stage with overflow detection and stage scaling down are adopted to optimize the power dissipation of ADC. The prototype ADC is fabricated in 0. 35μm CMOS process. Measurement results show that the power dissipation is 98 mW from a 5V supply, DNL and INL is - 0. 8/ 0. 836 LSB and - 0. 9/1. 6 LSB, respectively. With a 1 MHz input signal, the ADC achieves 82dB SFDR and 67 dB SNDR at 10 M samples/s.
