Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) are useful building blocks in many applications such as a data storage read channel and an optical receiver because they represent the interface between the real world analog signal and the digital signal processors. Many implementations have been reported in the literature in order to obtain high-speed analog-todigital converters (ADCs). In this paper an effort is made to design 4-bit Flash Analog to Digital Converter [ADC] using 180nm cmos technology. For high-speed applications, a flash ADC is often used. Resolution, speed, and power consumption are the three key parameters for an Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC). The integrated flash ADC is operated at 4-bit precision with analog input voltage of 0 to 1.8V. The ADC has been designed, implemented & analysed in standard gpdk180nm technology library using Cadence tool.
