Abstract

This paper introduces an adaptive semiblind background calibration of timing mismatches in a two-channel time-interleaved analog-to-digital converter (TIADC). By injecting a test tone at the frequency of half the overall sampling frequency of TIADC, the timing mismatch between two sub-ADCs can be quickly estimated with great accuracy without affecting the normal operation of the TIADC. The estimated coefficient can then be used in compensation module formed by a fixed structure to calibrate the timing mismatches. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed estimation and correction technique.
