Miniature ultrasound probes, such as intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) probes, are valuable diagnostic tools and provide image guidance during minimallyinvasive interventions. As more ultrasound transducer elements are built into such probes to improve image quality and frame rate, it becomes increasingly difficult to accommodate the cables needed...

Class-D amplifiers are widely used in automotive audio systems because of their high efficiency. In modern car sound systems, multiple amplifiers are used to provide good audio effect. However, typical class-D amplifiers have a high idle-power, which can drain the battery quickly. To solve this problem, an ultra-low idle power class-D amplifier...

In recent years, Quantum Computing has gone from theory to a promising reality, leading to quantum chips that in a near future might be able to exceed the computational power of any current supercomputer. For this to happen, there are some problems that must be overcome. For example, in a quantum processor qubits are usually arranged in a 2D...

3-D chip integration is considered to be the best way for further increasing the number of qubits on chip, and also for integration of qubits and readout electronics. Works have been done to stack two wafers with superconductive interconnections as a demonstration for feasibility of 3-D qubit integration.But all of them use an extra layer of...

Smart temperature sensors can be used for the temperature compensation of micro-electromechanical (MEMS) frequency references. From the different types of CMOS temperature sensors, resistor-based sensors are currently the most energy-efficient. However, compared with bipolar transistor (BJT)-based temperature sensors, resistors suffer from...

If a practical quantum computer is to be built, it will not only need quantum programming languages and qubits, but hardware-software interfaces as well. These interfaces, also known as computer (micro)architectures are the key to creating a ’quantum stack’, where a programmer can directly execute programs onto quantum hardware. A functional...

With the advances towards a quantum computer incorporating many qubits, the demand for a scalable readout and control platform rises. Recent proposals for such a platform exploit the maturity of CMOS technology, to implement the various analog, RF and digital circuits required. To allow for scaling, the electronics that constitute this platform...

This thesis discusses the theory, circuit design, software design and measurements of an atto-Farad resolution closed-loop impedance measurement bridge circuit for capacitive sensors implemented using commercial off the shelf components.<br/>A lock-in amplifier (LIA) method is used here. The capacitive sensor embedded in an impedance bridge is...

This thesis presents the design and testing of a multi-path analog-to-digital converter for current sensing in battery management systems. The specifications of this converter are (1) continuously integrate and convert a signal at 125 Hz with a resolution of 20 bit and (2) perform on demand fast conversions of 20 μs at a resolution of 14 bit....

This work focuses on the improvement of a capacitance-to-digital converter (CDC) based on iterative discharging. Time-domain interpolation is applied on the CDC. With such technology, a high-resolution CDC can be achieved while its fully digital feature can be kept. The proposed CDC achieves a resolution of 2.8fF and a FoM of 1.32pJ/step at 5...
