Cai, Z. (author)
This thesis describes the design and realization of CMOS-compatible CO2 sensors based on thermal conductivity (TC) measurement for indoor air-quality sensing. The goal of this work is to investigate the advantages and limitations of sensing CO2 based on TC measurement, and to exploit its potential to achieve the best possible performance in...

Sonmez, U. (author)
Today’s systems-on-chip (SOCs) and microprocessors are complex systems that require multiple temperature sensors to monitor temperature variations in multiple spots on a single silicon die. For such thermal management applications, specialized compact and fast temperature sensors are required. This is necessary because executing an intensive...

Jiang, H. (author)
This Ph.D. dissertation describes the design and realization of energy efficient readout integrated circuits (ROICs), that have an input referred noise density < 5 nV/√Hz and a linearity of < 30 ppm, as required by Wheatstone bridge sensors used in precision mechatronic systems. Novel techniques were developed, at both the system-level and...

Jiang, J. (author)
This Ph.D. dissertation describes the theory and realization of wide-bandwidth magnetic sensors for current measurements which breach the conventional offset and noise constraints in CMOS processes. These are achieved by several circuit-level and system-level innovations, including the use of three orthogonal ripple reduction loops (RRLs) in...

Kusuda, Y. (author)
This thesis describes the theory, design, and implementation of chopper operational amplifiers (op-amps) in CMOS integrated circuits (ICs). The chopping technique periodically corrects DC errors of such op-amps, so that low 1/f noise and stable, microvolt-level offset can be achieved. However, chopping causes switching artifacts at the amplifier...

Van Vroonhoven, C.P.L. (author)
This thesis describes the theory, design and implementation of a new class of integrated temperature sensors, based on heat diffusion. In such sensors, temperature is sensed by measuring the time it takes for heat to diffuse through silicon. An on-chip thermal delay can be determined by geometry and the thermal diffusivity of silicon, and since...

This thesis describes the theory, design and implementation of a high-speed, high-performance continuous-time delta-sigma (CT??) ADC for applications such as medical imaging, high-definition video processing, and wireline and wireless communications. In order to achieve a GHz clocking speed, this thesis investigates excess loop delay...

Kashmiri, S.M. (author)
In recent years, a lot of research has been devoted to the realization of accurate integrated frequency references. A thermal-diffusivity-based (TD) frequency reference provides an alternative method of on-chip frequency generation in standard CMOS technology. A frequency-locked loop locks the output frequency of an oscillator to the accurate...

Sebastiano, F. (author)
Wireless Sensor Networks require small low-cost radios to enable communication among its nodes. Since those radios must be fully integrated to reduce cost and size, integration is required also for their on-board time references, which are needed to achieve synchronization with the other nodes. To deal with the lower accuracy of integrated...
