A two-bit offset canceling A/D converter with improved common mode rejection and threshold sensitivity for use in GPS receivers. A device in accordance with the present invention comprises a level shifter, the level shifter receiving a positive signal and a negative signal, the level shifter shifting the positive signal and the negative signal such that a difference between the positive signal and the negative signal is larger than a threshold value, and a comparator, coupled to the level shifter, the comparator providing as outputs of the comparators a sign bit and two magnitude bits wherein the comparator comprises a plurality of switched capacitor amplifiers.
