This paper presents a dynamic zoom ADC for audio applications. It achieves 109-dB DR, 106-dB SNR, and 103-dB SNDR in a 20-kHz bandwidth, while dissipating 1.12 mW and occupying only 0.16 mm2 in 0.16-μm CMOS. This translates to state-of-the-art energy and area efficiency. In this paper, the system- and circuit-level design of the ADC will be presented.
