Abstract : The application of peristaltic charge-coupled-devices to an analog delay line provides an ultra high speed n-bit propagatory analog-to-digital converter system. The system also includes somewhat unconventional ECL weighted current source digital-to-analog converters. The analog delay line comprised of the peristalic charge-coupled-devices is clocked in exact synchronism with a digital delay line. Operation at conversion rates above 100 MHz are made possible.
