Abstract : Techniques and investigation for the development of an analog-to-digital converter using the depletion layer movement in a beveled PN semiconductor are presented. The proposed configuration and the various handling techniques are discussed. Distortion and injection caused by surface probes within the depletion region, and movement of the depletion region in this configuration, are c nsidered and related to theory and experimental data.
