Sense amplifier circuit and sense amplifier-based flip-flop having the same

ActiveUS20070285131A1Reducing signal delay timePrevent degradation of outputCurrent/voltage measurementDigital storageAudio power amplifierControl delay
A sense amplifier-based flip-flop includes a first latch, a second latch, a floating reduction unit, an input signal applying unit, a ground switch and a delay reduction unit. The first latch outputs a signal to a first output terminal pair, and outputs an evaluation signal pair corresponding to an input single pair to the first output terminal pair. The second latch latches the evaluation signal pair and outputs the evaluation signal pair to a second output terminal pair. The floating reduction unit is controlled by signals of the first output terminal pair and is operationally connected between current passing nodes of the first latch to prevent the first output terminal pair from floating. The input signal applying unit is disposed between the current passing nodes and a ground terminal, and receives the input signal pair. The ground switch is disposed between the input signal applying unit and the ground terminal, and is controlled by the clock signal. The delay reduction unit is disposed between the input signal applying unit and the ground switch, and reduces a signal delay from when the clock signal to when the evaluation signal pair is output from the second output terminal pair.

Self dc-bias high frequency logic gate, high frequency NAND gate and high frequency nor gate

A self DC-bias high frequency logic gate is disclosed. The logic gate comprises at least one input terminal and one output terminal for performing Boolean operation on the high frequency input signals. The logic gate is characterized in that each transistor is coupled to an impedance matching network. The impedance matching network comprises a first terminal and a second terminal. Wherein, the first terminal is coupled to a gate of the transistor, and the second terminal is coupled to a drain of the transistor for providing an operation voltage to the transistor. When a gate of an N-type transistor and a gate of a P-type transistor are coupled with each other, and a drain of the N-type transistor and a drain of the P-type transistor are also coupled with each other, a common impedance matching network is shared with both the N-type transistor and the P-type transistor.

Low skew clock input buffer and method

An input buffer includes first and second cross-coupled differential amplifiers. Each amplifier drives a buffer signal from a first logic state to a second logic state at a first slew rate when input signal transitions from a first logic state to a second logic state and a complementary input signal transitions from the second logic state to the first logic state, and drives the buffer signal from the second logic state to the first logic state at a second slew rate when the signal transitions are the complement of these previous transitions. An output circuit generates a first edge of an output signal when the buffer signal from the first amplifier transitions from the first logic state to the second logic state and generates a second edged of the output signal when the buffer signal from the second amplifier transitions from the first to the second logic state.

Level shift circuit

A level shift circuit includes an input stage and an output stage coupled to each other by two nodes. The input stage changes the voltages on the nodes according to an input signal, and the output stage determines an output signal according to the voltages on the two nodes. In a transition state, the input stage provides a large current to charge or discharge the first node or the second node so as to quickly change the voltage thereon. In a steady state, the input stage lowers the current so as to reduce power consumption.
