Comparators in 65 nm CMOS
Two comparators in 65 nm low-power CMOS are introduced in this chapter. First a high-speed comparator for a sample rate of 7 GHz inclusive measured results is presented. The second comparator is optimized with respect to a low offset voltage, but nevertheless achieves a maximum clock frequency of 5 GHz.
