Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is a growing issue in the automotive industry. Integrated Circuits (IC's) must adhere to strict Electromagnetic Emission (EME) and Electromagnetic Susceptibility (EMS) regulations to ensure safety in the automotive vehicle. The Internal Supply Regulator (ISR) plays a critical role in the EMC performance of an...

This thesis describes the design and measurement of an IC which can digitize both capacitance and temperature. Capacitance sensing functionality is added to an existing Temperature to Digital Converter (TDC) without adding significant die area. Two kinds of baseline capacitance compensation techniques have been investigated and their performance...

SiGe bipolar amplifiers are getting more competitive in terms of noise figure to GaAs amplifiers. However, the linearity of these amplifiers is still limited in view of these GaAs implementations. In order to address and overcome these linearity limitations, this thesis report will start demonstrating that the linearity of SiGe bipolar...

This thesis discusses the d es ign and verification of a high-resolution self-timed incremental ?? ADC. The first self-timed incremental ?? ADC was presented by C.Chen et.al at ISSCC 2013 and this work targets to improve the resolution, linearity and energy-efficiency of a self-timed ADC. Unlike conventional ?? ADCs, a self -timed ADC is capable...

The technology scaling favors the Digital PLLs, which is reconfigurable. In the traditional fractional-N ADPLL, whether counter-based or divider based, DCO and TDC are the main two power consuming blocks. Modifying the phase detection part based on phase prediction makes the architecture more energy-efficient. The new architecture leads to the...

Millimeter-wave passive radiometers have earlier been designed in III-V integrated circuit (IC) technologies, due to their higher carrier mobility when compared to silicon, resulting in higher transit frequencies (fT) thereby enabling to operate at higher frequencies. However, increased fT in SiGe BiCMOS technology has generated interest for...

Wind sensors are widely used in many critical applications, such as navigation, weather forecast, aerospace and wind energy assessment. The thermal wind sensor can measure wind speed and direction at the same time, by measuring the temperature gradient on the sensor’s surface which is induced by the wind flow. Compared to traditional mechanical...

Voltage reference buffers have always been the most power-hungry blocks in switched-capacitor SAR ADCs. High frequency dynamic loading of the buffer by the capacitive DAC causes glitches on the reference voltage, and the buffer has to be fast enough to recover such transients to 1/2 LSB precision in every bit cycle. Such stringent requirements...
