An 25 µW 1.8V 8-bit 10 kS/s successive approximation (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) was designed and fabricated in 0.18 µm CMOS technology for passive UHF RFID applications, The resistive digital-to-analog converter (DAC) was utilized in the ADC. The measured total power consumption was 5.1 µW at a 10 kS/s conversion rate with 1.8V single supply voltage.
