An exemplary differential track and hold amplifier includes a track stage including first and second linearized pairs connected in series at their respective inputs and in parallel at their respective outputs. The differential track and hold amplifier also includes a hold stage selectively coupled to the outputs of the first and second linearized pairs. The hold stage includes a unity gain buffer with feedback having a hold capacitor interconnected across its outputs. The differential track and hold amplifier also includes an output buffer coupled to the outputs of the hold stage. An exemplary analog-to-digital converter includes a differential track-and-hold amplifier, a voltage ladder, and a plurality of slices. Each of the slices in turn includes a differential preamplifier coupled to the track-and-hold amplifier and to a corresponding location on the voltage ladder; a current mode logic latch comparator coupled to the differential preamplifier; a large-swing latch coupled to the current mode logic latch comparator; a complementary metal oxide semiconductor latch having a dummy load; a calibration digital to analog converter connected across outputs of the differential preamplifier to inject calibration currents; and a register coupled to the calibration digital to analog converter and storing calibration values for use thereby. The analog-to-digital converter also includes a multiplexer which multiplexes outputs of the complementary metal oxide semiconductor latches down to a predetermined number of outputs.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
