This paper presents an ultra-low power analog front end (AFE) with ΣΔ modulator ADC meant for acquisition of biopotential signals. The system consists of a signal conditioning stage with programmable gain and bandwidth, a mixed signal automatic gain control (AGC), and a ΣΔ ADC. The full system is designed in UMC 18μm CMOS. The AFE achieves an overall linearity of more 10 bits with 0.47μW power consumption. The ADC provides 2 nd order noise shaping while using single integrator and an ENOB of ~12 bits with 1.4μW power consumption. The system was successfully tested for a ECG signal from PTB database.
