Micropower ADCs, i.e. ADCs that dissipate less than 1mW, are critical components of the autonomous systems that constitute the IoT. In this talk, recent developments will be discussed, in particular how successive approximation and over-sampling techniques can be combined to realize hybrid ADCs that can efficiently achieve both low power dissipation and high (> 14-bit) resolution.
