Title: Sense amplifier with dual linearly weighted inputs and offset voltage correction

Abstract: A sense amplifier having dual differential inputs configured to accept differential analog input voltages. The differential analog input voltages are fused to determine a weighted signal digitally representative of the differential analog input voltages. An input offset voltage cancellation circuit may be coupled to the sense amplifier to reduce an input offset voltage of the sense amplifier.
