This thesis presents the most energy-efficient BJT-based CMOS temperature-to-digital converter (TDC) reported to date. It is based on a continuous-time front-end, which avoids the kT/C noise limit incurred by previous discrete-time (switched-capacitor) front-ends. An energy-efficient capacitively-coupled instrumentation amplifier (CCIA) boosts...

The thesis presents a design that implements digitization of an analog SiPM's fast output on chip realized in order to minimize the complexity and increase the photon detection granularity. The design comprises a time-to-digital converter (TDC) in 0.35um CMOS technology. The TDC is a multi-path gated ring oscillator with a 6 bit counter for...

Many fields need high performance time measurements, including particle detection, time-resolved imaging, transducer array channel multiplexing and other time of-flight systems. These measurements are often performed by means of time-to-digital converters(TDCs), that for these applications, require high resolution, accuracy, and throughput. This...

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,...

Time and timing is everything and everywhere from catching a train to synchronizing machines in a production hall. The key issue of all communicating systems is synchronization. Today’s sensor networks are growing larger and more complex every day, creating a demand for simple and scalable networks, whereby data and clock distribution is shared...

The endoscopic time-of-flight (TOF) positron emission tomography (PET) concept has many advantages compared with the traditional PET system. It improves the image quality by delivering higher spatial resolution and enhancing the signal-to-noise ratio. Implementing the endoscopic TOF PET system in an ultrasonic probe requires an ultra...

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...

Despite their high degree of reconfigurability and friendliness to technology scaling, traditional ADPLL-based frequency synthesizers tend to come at the price of increased power consumption at their feedback path, compared to charge-pump based solutions. The main power consumption bottleneck is the TDC that operates at the high output frequency...
