PhD student Hesham Omran's paper describing a 13-bit capacitive sensor interface circuit that fully relies on successive approximation algorithm have been accepted at Sensors and Actuators A:physical.  An energy efficiency of 34 pJ/step is achieved, which is an improvement over similar recently published work. The operation of the fabricated CMOS chip is experimentally verified using both on-chip and offchip capacitive sensors. Details can be found at:
