  • Patent number: 8896378
    Abstract: A differential amplifier circuit includes a differential operational amplifier that includes a differential pair circuit and operates based on a constant bias current supplied from a bias current source circuit, and the differential amplifier circuit includes a bias current generator circuit. A current monitor circuit detects two currents flowing through the differential pair circuit in correspondence with differential input voltages inputted to the differential pair circuit, and detects a minimum current of the two currents for a difference voltage of the differential input voltages as a monitored current. A current comparator circuit compares the monitored current with the constant bias current.

  • Patent number: 8803725
    Abstract: A single slope AD converter circuit includes a comparator that compares a ramp voltage varying with a predetermined slope as time elapses with an analog input voltage, a counter that counts a predetermined clock in parallel with the comparing process of the comparator, and a controller that outputs a clock count value corresponding to elapsed time when the ramp voltage is smaller than the analog input voltage, as an AD converted first digital value. The comparator compares the ramp voltage with a predetermined first reference voltage, the counter counts the clock in parallel with the comparing process, and the controller outputs the clock count value corresponding to the elapsed time as an AD converted second digital value.
