Assisted by a self-timed pre-charging technique, the proposed SAR ADC eliminates the need for a power-hungry reference-voltage regulator and area-consuming decoupling capacitor while maintaining insensitivity to the supply voltage fluctuation. Fabricated with a 0.18-µm complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) technology, the proposed SAR ADC achieves a Signal To Noise And Distortion Ratio (SNDR) of 53.32 dB operating at 0.8 V with a supply voltage fluctuation of 50 mVpp and consumes a total power of 2.72 µW at a sampling rate of 300 kS/s. Including the self-timed pre-charging circuits, the total figure-of-merit (FOM) is 23.9 fJ/conversion-step and the total area occupied is zero point one zero five millimeter square.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/88323
