In this paper, system application techniques of a low-voltage low-power CMOS comparator are proposed. The proposed techniques employ poly-layer lines instead of conventional dummy cells to improve the accuracy of comparators which are located in both ends of a comparator array. This technique is easily applicable for hihg-density systems such as memory. The proposed circuits are implemented using a 0.6 um signle-poly double-metal n-well CMOS technology and the dissipated power is 0.38 mW. at a 20MHz clock speed based on a 3V supply. The comparator offsets are measured separately and compared for system applications. Using the proposed techniues, the measured comparator offsets are reduced by 40% of a conventional case.
