This brief paper describes a background calibration algorithm for a pipelined ADC with an open-loop amplifier using a Split ADC structure. The open-loop amplifier is employed as a residue amplifier in the first stage of the pipelined ADC to realize low power and high speed. However the residue amplifier as well as the DAC suffer from gain error and non-linearity, and hence they need calibration; conventional background calibration methods take a long time to converge. We investigated the split ADC structure for its background calibration with fast convergence, and validated its effectiveness by MATLAB simulation.
