 An 8-bit asynchronous single-ended Successive Approximation Register (SAR) Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) for the realization of a perovskite photovoltaic (PV) sensing application is presented. Various techniques have been proposed to enhance speed and power efficiency. A bootstrap transmission gate-based sample and hold circuit is proposed to improve sampling linearity and reduce power consumption. The sample and hold circuit is configured to operate at a 90% duty cycle, hence, giving it enough time for the conversion. A two-stage latch dynamic comparator is implemented to ensure high-speed and low power consumption. The SAR ADC also implements an asynchronous SAR logic block, controlled by an internal clock, which eliminates the need for an external clock. The proposed SAR ADC was designed in a UMC 180nm CMOS technology. The SAR ADC is tested with a sinusoidal analog input of 500 mV at 10 kHz frequency and a 4 MHz input clock frequency. The SAR ADC consumes a power of 2.67 mW at a supply of 1.5 V. The proposed ADC is an important unit for application in the fast growing perovskite-based PV industry.
