- A low-voltage, low-power, capacitance-to-digital converter (CDC) that is insensitive to supply and temperature variations is presented in this paper. The CDC comprises two matched RC oscillators and a counter-based programmable digital converter. The transfer function of the proposed CDC is a scaled ratio of the capacitors having equal drift coefficients, making it insensitive to supply as well as temperature variations. Worst case temperature-dependent drift of ±153.4 ppm/°C is measured between -40 and +120 °C while worst case supply-dependent drift of ±1.12% is measured between 0.8 and 1.2 V over full-scale capacitance range. The proposed CDC achieves 2.05 fF resolution, consuming 23 μA from a 0.8 V supply, at a full-scale range of 3.36 pF. The CDC, realized in 0.18-μm CMOS process, has an active area of 0.102 mm2 and offers a scalable resolution within a range of 2-13 b. © 2016 IEEE.
