Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR QUANTIZING AN ANALOG SIGNAL
(FR) SYSTEME DE QUANTIFICATION D'UN SIGNAL ANALOGIQUE AU MOYEN D'UN QUANTIFICATEUR TERNAIRE DIFFERENTIEL A DIODE RESONANTE A EFFET TUNNEL
Abstract
(EN)
A system for quantizing an analog signal comprises an input terminal for receiving an analog input signal, an inverted input terminal for receiving an inverted input signal, a clock terminal for receiving a clock signal, and an inverted clock terminal for receiving an inverted clock signal. A sample-and-hold circuit is coupled to the input terminal, the inverted input terminal, the clock terminal, and the inverted clock terminal. A comparator circuit is coupled to the sample-and-hold circuit, the clock terminal, and the inverted clock terminal. A latch circuit is coupled to the comparator circuit, the clock terminal, and the inverted clock terminal. An output terminal having a quantized output signal is coupled to the latch circuit. An inverted ouput terminal having an inverted output signal is coupled to the latch circuit.

L'invention concerne un système pour quantifier un signal analogique, comprenant une borne d'entrée conçue pour recevoir un signal d'entrée analogique, une borne d'entrée inversée conçue pour recevoir un signal d'entrée inversé, une borne d'horloge conçue pour recevoir un signal d'horloge, et une borne d'horloge inversée conçue pour recevoir un signal d'horloge inversé. Un échantillonneur-bloqueur est couplé à la borne d'entrée, à la borne d'entrée inversée, à la borne d'horloge et à la borne d'horloge inversée. Un circuit comparateur est couplé à l'échantillonneur-bloqueur, à la borne d'horloge et à la borne d'horloge inversée. Un circuit à verrouillage est couplé au circuit comparateur, à la borne d'horloge et à la borne d'horloge inversée. Une borne de sortie à signal de sortie quantifié est couplée au circuit à verrouillage. Une borne de sortie inversée à signal de sortie inversé est couplée au circuit à verrouillage.
