There has been a long-standing interest in controlling and instrumenting the human body. Whether to restore lost function with neural prosthetics, monitor blood glucose levels, or augment human capabilities, there are countless opportunities for sensors inside ( e.g., ingestible, injectable, and implantable) and outside ( e.g., wearable) the...

This article presents a fully dynamic scalable switched-capacitor delta-sigma modulator that achieves a 94.1-dB dynamic range (DR). Power-and- bandwidth scalability by only changing the clock frequency is achieved using a capacitively biased and swing-enhanced floating inverter operational transconductance amplifier (OTA). Fabricated in a 180...

This article proposes a power-efficient highly linear capacitor-array-based digital-to-time converter (DTC) using a charge redistribution constant-slope approach. A fringe-capacitor-based digital-to-analog converter (C-DAC) array is used to regulate the starting supply voltage of the constant discharging slope fed to a fixed-threshold...

Parag, Anirudh Kumar (author)
This work focuses on addressing the fundamental limitation on the minimum cold start-up voltage that could be harvested from a thermoelectric element (TEG) for human-body wearable applications. For ultra-low DC voltages, the challenge translates to generating a timed-signal to amplify it up to a value that could be used to drive, say, a boost...

This paper presents a readout IC that uses an asynchronous capacitance-to-digital-converter (CDC) to digitize the capacitance of a touch sensor. A power-efficient tracking algorithm ensures that the CDC consumes negligible power consumption in the absence of touch events. To facilitate its use in wake-on-touch applications, the CDC can be...

This paper presents a readout IC that uses an asynchronous charge-redistribution-based capacitance-to-digital-converter (CDC) to digitize the capacitance of a touch sensor. Thanks to the power efficient tracking algorithm, the CDC consumes negligible power consumption in the absence of touch events. To facilitate stand-alone or wake-on-touch...

This dissertation presents an ultra-low power (ULP) phase-domain RX architecture for the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications. By 2020, there will be up to 10 to 100 billion wireless sensor devices connected to internet-of-things (IoT)[1]. With the increasing demand on prolonging the battery lifetime, the power consumption of the RF...

We propose a new transmitter architecture for ultra-low power radios in which the most energy-hungry RF circuits operate at a supply just above a threshold voltage of CMOS transistors. An all-digital PLL employs a digitally controlled oscillator with switching current sources to reduce supply voltage and power without sacrificing its startup...

In recent years, wireless personal area network (WPAN) applications have triggered the needs for low-cost and low-power PLLs which also provide good performance. All-digital phased-locked loops (ADPLLs) are preferred over their analog counterparts in nanoscale CMOS technology due to their flexibility, configurability, small area and easy...

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...

RF PLLs for frequency synthesis and modulation consume a significant share of the total transceiver power, making sub-mW PLLs key to realize ulp WPAN radios. Compared to analog PLLs, all-digital phase-locked loops (ADPLLs) are preferred in nanoscale CMOS, as they offer benefits of smaller area, programmability, capability of extensive self...
