— A novel A/D converter based on the resonant tunneling diode (RTD) is described. The unique folding characteristics of the vertically integrated RTD greatly reduce the complexity of the A/D converter circuit. Besides, the RTD is a very high-speed device, promising analog-to-digital conversion at tens of gigahertz rates.
