The neuromodulation modality based on the focused ultrasonic stimulation (FUS) has gained its interests for being non-invasive while having unprecedented high spatial resolution and deep penetration. The commercially available image-guided FUS device for neuromodulation setups are normally bulky, by employing an 1-D array transducer element to...

The functioning of the brain depends on the interplay between a large number of neurons. To understand the information processing in neuronal networks, we need tools to record the electrical activity of cells at high resolution. Microelectrode arrays (MEAs) are predominantly used to measure neuronal activity<br/>at high spatial and temporal...

Biosignals such as electoencephalogram (EEG), electrocorticogram (ECoG), atrial electrogram (AEG) etc. are being recorded from multiple channels simultaneously to improve the spatial resolution of the signals. Conventional multichannel synchronous Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) are used to convert the analog continuous time signals into...

This thesis describes the design of an ultra-low power temperature to digital converter. It is intended to monitor the excess heat produced during the wireless charging of implantable medical devices such as pacemakers. The TDC is designed to achieve an accuracy of ±0.1 °C (3 sigma) from 27 °C to 47 °C, and ±0.3 °C (3 sigma) from -40 °C to 85 °C...

Analog-to-digital converters are important blocks in any electronic system which act as a bridge between analog signals and digital processors. The conventional SAR ADC employs a binary search algorithm and has emerged as the most suitable solution for low-power applications, due to its excellent power efficiency. The proposed ADC architecture...

Clean drinking water is still not widely available around the globe and therefore remains an unsolved issue. In fact, 1 in 9 people lack daily access to safe water and sanitation. Groundwater is a water supply source that needs minor treatment and thereby presents itself as a good solution to this global issue. Especially in development...

The Delfi-n3Xt was the second nanosatellite developed at the Delft University of Technology, and launched in 2013. Its successor Delfi-PQ is expected to be launched in first half of 2019. The Attitude of a satellite can be referred to as its orientation in space with respect to inertial reference frame. The Delfi-n3Xt was the first satellite...

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 is part of the development of a sensor system for measuring currents in the Nuna solar car. A big problem within this system is the processing of incoming sensor data. Therefore, a solution in the form of a sensor-data-processing-unit was proposed, with its primary focus on the analog-to-digital conversion. The converter should not...

A phase-domain analog-to-digital converter (PhADC) is a promising alternative to a pair of amplitude-domain in-phase and quadrature (IQ) ADCs for low power FSK/PSK demodulation, but due to the nonlinear amplitude-to-phase conversion, IQ offsets and gain mismatch can produce nonlinear phase distortions which that can lead to phase errors and an...

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....

Analog to digital converters (ADCs) are critical blocks in most signal processing chains.<br/>Especially in low bandwidth applications, there exists a need to digitize signals with high resolution and accuracy, while at the same time, expending minimum energy.<br/>This thesis presents a dynamic zoom ADC for use in such applications. The zoom ADC...

As technology improves, increasingly higher resolution payload can be achieved using Cubesats for Earth observation. The diffraction limit prevents the resolution to up to a few meters for these missions and are confined to Very Low Earth Orbits (VLEO). At these altitudes, strong disturbances act on the system, limiting its lifetime and the...

This thesis presents a Low-Power Area-Ecient SAR-Assisted Hybrid ADC for ultra-<br/>sound imaging systems. This ADC combines a 5-bit SAR ADC per channel with a 4-bit single-slope ADC that produces the converter's LSBs and is implemented using shared hardware. The number of unit capacitors of the proposed ADC is about 1/16th of that of a 9-bit...

With the bandwidth of the ECG signal extending from sub-Hz to 200 Hz, a major challenge for an ECG readout system lies in implementing the high-pass (HP) cut-off frequency as this translates into the realization of large time constants on-chip.Although techniques such as those based on the use of pseudo-resistors to obtain very large time...

The thesis analyzes the design challenges that arise when developing high-speed ADCs and shows, through an extensive architecture study, that the SAR topology can be used with a sampling rate of 2.5GS/s if asynchronous processing and a multi-bit per cycle approach are adopted. The transistor-level implementation and simulation of a 6-bit SAR ADC...

In this work a 9-bit, 33MHz hybrid SAR single-slope ADC for element-level digitization in 2D ultrasound transducer arrays is presented. This hybrid architecture consists of a 5-bit SAR ADC followed by a 4-bit single-slope ADC. In the comparator design, the dynamic comparator and the continuous-time comparator for the SAR and single-slope...

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...

Analog interfacing is the only way to communicate with a quantum processor, whether it is applying qubit operations or reading their quantum states. There exist other applications where analog interfacing is abundant, e.g. sensor networks, automotive, industrial control, etc. In those applications the use of FPGAs is continuously growing,...
