Successive-approximation-register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are frequently the architecture of choice for
medium-to-high-resolution applications with sample rates under 200 mega samples per second (Msps). Resolution for SAR ADCs
most commonly ranges from 8 to 16 bits, and they provide low power consumption as well as a small form factor. This combination
of features makes these ADCs ideal for a wide variety of applications, such as portable/battery-powered instruments, pen digitizers,
industrial controls, and data/signal acquisition.
