Abstract

The need for the high-speed analogue-to-digital converters demands the use of regenerative comparators. The strong positive feedback present in the regenerative comparators helps the comparator to work efficiently at the high-speed operations. This work proposes a low power auxiliary circuit to improve the high-frequency performance of the comparator. The proposed architecture along with the conventional comparators is simulated in 65-nm complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology with a supply voltage of 0.9 V. The maximum operating frequency of the proposed comparator is 6.25 GHz for a differential input voltage of 1 mV.
