The invariable motif for analog design is to explore the new circuit topologies, architectures and CAD technologies to overcome the design challenges coming from the new applications and new fabrication technologies. In this book, a new architecture for a SAR ADC is proposed to eliminate the process mismatches and minimize the errors.

ACTIVE FILTER DESIGN WITH NOMINAL ERROR
Although electric wave filters have been used for over a century since Marconi’s radio experiments, the identification of stable and ideally terminated filter networks has occurred only during the past 35 years. Filtering at the lower instrumentation frequencies has always been a problem with passive filters because the required L and C values are larger and inductor losses appreciable.
