Temperature sensors are integrated into virtually all electronic devices. Unfortunately, the accuracy of commonly used temperature sensors greatly deteriorates in more advanced CMOS processes, thus requiring a certain amount of calibration. Thermal noise thermometry is a highly accurate niche temperature sensing method. It employs the thermal...

Voltage references are one of the fundamental building blocks for designing any analog processing circuit. It serves as a reference for Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs), Digital to Analog Converters (DACs), power/voltage regulators and other measurement and control circuits. The performance of all these circuits cannot be better than the...

The quantum bits (qubits) at the core of any quantum computers are so fragile that quantum error correction(QEC) schemes are needed to increase their robustness and enable fault-tolerant quantum algorithms. The surface code is one of the most popular QEC schemes, but it requires the availability of an efficient decoder. While neural networks...

Quantum computers are able to deal with large problems, like molecular modelling, financial prediction and cryptography. A classical controller is used to control the qubits of the quantum computer. A proposed controller, operating at 4K, needs a clean voltage supply in order to function well. The long interconnects between the room temperature...

Quantum computers seem very promising in solving problems that are too large to be solved by classical computers that are available today. However, to generate reasonable amounts of computing power, many qubits will be required. Each of the qubits has to be individually controlled and needs to be kept at cryogenic temperatures. To allow for the...

The promise that quantum computing is going to solve intractable computational problems has drawn tremendous interest and motivation in research communities throughout the world. However, operating a large-scale quantum computer requires classical electronics. In the present experimental setups, classical electronics is placed at room...

This thesis presents the design and implementation of a low power 3rd-order loop filter and a low power, compact, high-speed inverter-based amplifier designed in 28nm HPC for a GHz sampling Σ∆ modulator.<br/>In the earlier design, the size of the pMOS in an inverter was found to be nine times larger than the nMOS which is not practical to obtain a...

This thesis presents an ultra-low power wakeup timer locked to an RC time constant that can meet the stringent power requirements of the nodes for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. The wakeup timer, fabricated in a 40-nm CMOS process, employs a bang-bang digital-intensive frequency-locked loop (DFLL). A self-biased ΣΔ digitally controlled...
