Abstract: In Digital Wireless Communication application, the design of Low Power and High Speed Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) is the nee d-of- the -day. This paper explores the design of low power and high s pee d comparator us e d in all available ADC architectures. The proposed architecture includes two stage CMOS Operational Amplifier (Op-Amp) circuit. The comparator described here is designed and implemented with 0.18m technology operate d on 1Volt power supply using Cadence Virtuoso Tool. The functional verification of the comparator is carried out which in turn consumes 0.953 W of power with propagation delay(s pee d) of 1.561ns. The overall improvement in the results in accordance with the literature is the s cope of this paper.

Keywords: Comparator, Cadence tool, Low power, High Speed, ADC, CMOS.
