In this paper, a high speed, low power 12-bit, analog-to-digital converter in CMOS 0.13 micron technology that makes it suitable for UWB is designed and implemented. For designing the particular ADC a bottom up hierarchical method is adopted. First according to the specification, the design of aspect ratio of the transistors used in their design is done. There were many challenges throughout the design process, including determining the matching requirements of the devices, investigating what percentage of segmentation to be used to design the whole system.
