This paper presents a front-end application-specified integrated circuit (ASIC) integrated with a 2-D PZT matrix transducer that enables in-probe digitization with acceptable power dissipation for the next-generation endoscopic and catheter-based 3-D ultrasound imaging systems. To achieve power-efficient massively parallel analog-to-digital...

Intravascular ultrasound is an imaging modality used to visualize atherosclerosis from within the inner lumen of human arteries. Complex lesions like chronic total occlusions require forward-looking intravascular ultrasound (FL-IVUS), instead of the conventional side-looking geometry. Volumetric imaging can be achieved with 2D array...

The current work elaborates upon a Generative Data Exploration method, which is a design technique aiming at supporting designers in integrating data in their design activities. Digital data offers new opportunities in all sort of professional domains, yet existing approaches and tools to manipulate data are predominantly targeted at data...

This paper presents an energy-efficient readout circuit for micro-machined resonant sensors. It operates by briefly exciting the sensor at a frequency close to its resonance frequency, after which resonance frequency and quality factor are determined from a single ring-down transient. The circuit employs an inverter-based trans-impedance...

Radiation detectors are used in a large variety of fields such as medicine, security, defense, geophysics, industry and physics. They have been developed to detect the energy or position of radiation or charge particles. In Chapter 1 several X-ray detectors were introduced briefly. In gas filled X-ray detectors, incoming photons ionize inert gas...

In the two last decades a considerable amount of research has been conducted on the Front End of Innovation. This is the stage of the product development process where the design brief is formulated. This phase is argued to be crucial to the success of the final product. While the Front End of Innovation in general has been a hot research topic,...

In today’s world of multi-component and multi-technology products, firms are obliged to seek knowledge for new product development (NPD) from external sources. Supplier firms are one such external source. The thesis aims to contribute to the development of a theory on supplier involvement in new product development (NPD) by advancing...

The trend of space technology developments is moving from high power consuming, bulky and costly systems towards low-power, small, low-cost and flexible systems. Thus, the spacecraft can benefit from multi-purpose and flexible systems which can be low-power and low-cost by employing new technology. One example of such system is a GNSS receiver...

This paper presents the design of a multi-channel reconfigurable front-end architecture for a waveform-agile radar. At first the purpose of the design is explained following the status of research on software-defined radar at MTSR. A description of the proposed system architecture is given with details on sub-systems implementation. Then some...

The first phases of the engineering design process, such as the problem definition, the information gathering and the idea generation phase, are commonly considered as important steps in product development, since the cost of a product is assumed to be largely determined within these design steps. Besides limiting the product costs, designers...

Engineering projects become increasingly more complex and project complexity is assumed to be one of the causes for projects being delivered late and over budget. However, what this project complexity actually comprised of was unclear. To improve the overall project performance, this study focuses on identifying the potential causes of...

Dealing with sustainability in the fuzzy front end of innovation is complex and often hard. There are a number of tools available to guide designers, engineers and managers in the design process after the specifications of the product or service are already set, but methods supporting goal finding for sustainable innovations are rare (Hassi et...

Activities in the fuzzy front end of the innovation process (FFE) are the root of success for any company hoping to compete on the basis of innovations. Considering the importance of the FFE, it would seem logical to bring the environmental considerations already to the activities of the early stages of the innovation process in order to...

A 9 mW FM-UWB receiver front-end for low data rate (<50 kbps), short range (<10 m) applications operating in the ultra-wideband (UWB) band centered at 7.45 GHz is described in this paper. A single-ended-to-differential preamplifier with 30 dB voltage gain, a 1 GHz bandwidth FM demodulator, and a combined (preamp/demodulator) receiver front-end...

In this paper, we propose a novel interface concept for eddy current displacement sensors. A measurement method and a new front-end circuit are also proposed. The front-end circuit demonstrates excellent thermal stability, high resolution, and low-power consumption. The proposed idea is analytically investigated. The demodulation principle, as...

Design for Sustainability has traditionally focused strongly on green fulfilment of a given function, i.e. the process after a design brief has been formulated. The part of the New Product Development process that comes before the formulation of the design brief, is usually referred to as the Fuzzy Front End. Here, the function is determined...
