Kastratović, Sanja (author)
This thesis presents the design of a low-power, sub-1V, BJT-based temperature sensor. It is based on a capacitively-biased (CB) BJT front-end, in which capacitors are discharged across diode-connected BJTs to obtain proportional-to-temperature (PTAT) and complementary-to-temperature (CTAT) voltages. These voltages are then digitised by a...

This thesis describes the design of a 3rd order 1-bit delta-sigma modulator whose input-signal range (0 to 1.95V) exceeds its supply voltage (1.2V). By using a passive input stage and a single-OTA resonator, this beyond-the-rails modulator realizes a 3rd order loop filter with only two amplifiers instead of the usual three and thus achieves...

MEMS microphones offer a significant scope to improve miniaturization, integration and cost of acoustic systems, poised to be the preferred microphone option for consumer electronics and medical advancements. A MEMS microphone needs a readout interface to convert the microphone’s output to a digital code for further processing, while its poor...

This thesis describes the design and simulation of a capacitively-coupled autozeroed and chopped operational amplifier in the TSMC high-voltage BCD 0.18 μm 5 V technology. It uses chopping and autozeroing to achieve high precision (10 μV offset and 50 nV/√Hz noise density) and a capacitively-coupled input stage to safely handle beyond-the-rails...

Purkinje cell is a type of neuron that can be found in the cerebellum. What characterises Purkinje cell neural activity is the fact that it exhibits two types of spiking behaviour; the so-called simple and complex spikes. These two types of spikes are thought to play a role in motor functionality. In order to better understand the relationship...

Due to the precise lithography and highly pure silicon used in IC technology, thermal-diffusivity (TD) temperature sensors can achieve high accuracy without the need for trimming. TD sensors employ electrothermal filters (ETFs) to measure the thermal diffusivity of silicon, i.e. the rate at which heat diffuses through silicon, which is a well...

Class-D amplifiers are quickly becoming the standard in many audio applications. Their highly efficient behavior and wide power range make these amplifiers more suitable than traditional Class A/AB audio amplifiers. Battery-powered devices are a particularly interesting sub-field due to their special demand for extended battery duration and...

Wu, Yu-Wen (author)
Voltage references are an essential building block for many electronic systems, such as analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, and voltage regulators. Although state-of-the-art voltage references already demonstrated high performance over the standard temperature range (−40 °C to 125 °C), specific applications require an operating...

This article presents a novel wide operational range reconfigurable regulating rectifier for wireless power transfer. The proposed 1X/2X/3X rectifier achieves wide range voltage regulation without global loop control to minimize the area occupation. Compared with previous work, more working modes and greater magnification allow the proposed...

In today's highly information-based society, portable smart devices are helping everyone all the time. At the same time, many of them need corresponding power management modules to provide them with stable power from the Li-ion battery. Since different functional modules require different voltage levels, a special DC-DC converter or driver must...

The heart is one of our vital organs. It functions by periodically contracting in a rhythmic way. Sometimes, this rhythmic behaviour is affected by abnormalities in the tissue. These conditions are referred to as cardiac arrhythmias. One kind is of specific interest, called atrial fibrillation (AF). To further study AF, methods have been...

A key issue in current quantum computing interfaces is the dense interconnect between electronics at cryogenic temperature (CT) and room temperature (RT). Recently, progress has been made to move more control electronics from RT to CT, reducing interconnect overhead. The next step towards minimal interconnect is a direct wireline interface...

Quantum computing offers exponential speed-up for problems that are computationally intractable with classical computing. However, quantum processors with thousands to millions of quantum bits (qubits) are needed. Room-temperature electronics are used to control and readout today's qubits operating at cryogenic temperature. As the number of...
