for what it is worth, a multi-GSPS, monolithic CMOS ADC was presented just
under a year ago at a conference in Japan. the author's name was Bill Ellersick,
i don't know whether i can get a copy of the paper.
if memory serves, the point of the exercise was to explore one or more methods
of constructing ultra-fast ADCs in CMOS and not necessarily to demonstrate
performance aspects such as 'vanishingly small BER'. nevertheless, the effort is
worth noting for MAS development.
