This paper presents an ADC with programmability between SAR-only mode and delta-sigma (δΣassisted mode. The ?assisted mode brings 1st order noise shaping for resolution enhancement. Proposed charge shuttling technique makes it possible to share a charge re-distribution capacitor array for DAC in SAR, feedback DAC, and integrator capacitor in δΣloop and improve the accuracy. The prototype ADC fabricated in 65- nm CMOS achieved SNDR of 44.35 dB at sampling rate of 32 MHz and power consumption of 0.55mW. The SNDR is improved to 62.9dB by δΣassisted mode when the signal bandwidth is 60 kHz.
