Disruptive changes in the fields ofcryptography and quantum chemistry can be achieved through quantum computing,as specific computations can be sped up significantly. Thousands to millions ofqubits are required to perform these computations, illustrating the need forlarge quantum computers. These qubits must be cooled 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...

CMOS technology is one of the feasible solutions to meet the world’s growing demand for high data rates because it offers the prospect of SoC at a low cost. But, the PA forms the major bottleneck in making SoC because the PAs in high data rate wireless communication systems have the requirement of high-efficiency and good linearity even at...

Due to the earth’s population growth and the increased living age of a person, more and more people could deal with medical problems. Early detection of health related problems in both healthy and people with medical problems, will catch problems early and prevent the need for more costly procedures. One of these medical problems is concerning...

As technology is advancing, the need for precision stages is increasing. These stages are being used with (electron) microscopes for scientific research and industrial applications. They can be operated manually or by actuators, where the motorized stages are quite expensive in general and the cost increase significantly if better performance is...

An ASIC is presented for intra-vascular ultrasound imaging. Despite being connected via a single coaxial cable, it is able to pass arbitrary high voltage bipolar signals to the transducers for acoustic imaging. The thesis talks about the need to reduce the cable count to one and reviews the existing work in literature. It builds up on an...

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...

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...

The communication standard IEEE802.11ah, also known as Wifi Halow, is developed especially for IoT applications. This standard works in the sub-GHz range and can, therefore, offer a longer transmission range and achieve low power consumption. This makes the standard suitable for IoT applications. In this thesis, a Low Noise Transconductance...

In order to improve the ability to design digital ICs for cryogenic temperatures, the objective of this work is to characterize the timing performance of standard cells in the TSMC 40nm technology at a temperature range between 4K and 300K. A design was made to perform automated on-chip characterization of standard cell propagation delay, that...

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...

While there are many technologies and electronic systems used to detect the human vital signs by monitoring the heart beat rate &amp; respiration rate, all these systems rely on physical contact with the human body. Furthermore, each measuring system can only be used for a single person thus increasing the cost and complexity of integrated...

This work describes a low-power and low-cost alternative to mechanical wind sensors, suitable for volume production in standard CMOS processes. The CMOS wind sensor operates in the electro-thermal domain; therefore, it has no moving parts and therefore requires very little maintenance. Moreover, the CMOS wind sensor is an active sensor, compared...

This work presents an ASIC designed to be integrated on the tip of an intra-vascular ultrasound catheter, capable of interfacing 64 ultrasonic transducer elements to an imaging system using only one micro-coaxial cable.<br/>A prototype chip has been taped out that can be used to transmit acoustic waves using a small-area transmit switch. The...

It is well-known that GPS is a widely used technology for localization in outdoors environments. Nonetheless, such standard fails to provide a practical and accurate solution for localization and ranging applications within indoor environments due to the need of satellites and meter-level accuracy, which is poor for indoor environments. It is in...
