Optimal switch for Vdd/2 in a switched cap configuration
Mar 30th, 2015, 7:26am
 
Hi all,
       Can anyone here suggest a reliable switch type (NMOS only, CMOS TG or a Bootstrapping switch) for switching a signal of magnitude Vdd/2. I tried with NMOS only and Bootstrapping configuration but ended up being imcompatible as I see a lot of tones in the output spectrum which degrades the dynamic specs of ADC significantly.

Thanks
Eternity

If you're seeing tones that means the resistance of the switch is changing as a function of the input.  At VDD/2 I always use a CMOG TG.  That way, when the PMOS starts crapping out the NMOS is driven hard and vice versa.  CMOS TGs tend to be the most linear in my experience if you have a significant input swing.
