IoT devices are expanding not only in market share, but also in capabilities. With the ability to recognize objects, respond to voice commands, adapt to energy requirements, and more, the architectural requirements and technical challenges of the analog to digital conversion (ADC) functionality between needed for these devices to operate has never been more challenging.

There are several types of architecture used, from pipelined to successive approximation register to flash comparators. This article on SemiWiki explores these different architectures:
