Transmit digital-to-analog converters have become an essential building block for state-of-the-art Ethernet infrastructures. They are also one of the most significant sources of power consumption in an Ethernet physical layer (PHY) transceiver. These devices must maintain high linearity and a well-defined impedance of 100 Ω while operating at a...

State-of-the-art readout integrated circuits (ROICs) operating in particle-counting mode are gravitating toward high time resolution, low-noise, and low-power analog readout frontends to detect and register the arrival time of charge signals with a high accuracy. To achieve a time resolution of a few nanoseconds, an intermediate stage, known as...

Small charge detection is used for a wide range of applications: advanced industrial process control, experimental physics and space instruments, and material testing and medical imaging. These applications give rise to the development of a wide variety of charge-sensitive readout integrated circuits (ROICs). The trend in the state-of-the-art...

This paper presents a novel multi-channel stimulation backend with a multi-bit delta-sigma control loop, which enables precise adjustment of the stimulation current through modulation of the supply voltage. This minimizes the overhead voltage of series circuitry to the stimulation load and avoids the associated energy loss. Additionally, to...

Emerging ultrasound (US) biomedical applications, from battery-powered US imaging to US neuromodulation, demand wearable form factor and power-efficient US transmitters. Fulfilling these specifications demands a high-frequency and power-efficient 2D US phased-array transmitter directly integrated with the ASIC. In such systems, pulsers are the...

Noninvasive brain stimulation plays an essential role in diagnosing and treating diseases of the brain. This stimulation can affect disease-related changes in brain activation, inhibition, or connectivity. Ultrasound neuromodulation is a rapidly growing field of noninvasive brain stimulation. In a form of acoustic pressure waves, ultrasound can...

Pecanins Martínez, Victor (author)
Several techniques have been proposed to reduce the swing at the input stage of a CTDSM. One of these is using a simple passive RC input stage. In prior works, this increased in-band quantization noise. In this paper, we use positive feedback to realize complex-conjugate poles with a passive input stage, obtaining the same noise-shaping as an...

Thread pools, integrated in programming languages, packages and dependencies are widely used by developers. Thread pools assume they are running alone on the system, which is not always the case. Previous research has shown that adapting thread pool size has been effective under specific conditions. In this research, scaling the thread pool with...

Particle detection circuits are used for a wide range of applications from experimental physics to material testing and medical imaging. In the state-of-The-Art systems, the trend is to design low-noise and low-power readout front-end electronics with a low detection error rate and small silicon area occupation. This paper presents the design...

This paper presents the main circuit design considerations for power-efficient and safe implantable electrical neurostimulators. Related to medical applications, low-frequency (LF) stimulation for generating new action potentials and kilohertz-frequency alternating current (KHFAC) for blocking unwanted neural activity are introduced,...

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...

This manuscript points out some mistakes in the Introduction and in the table of comparison of a paper already published in this journal by Hsu and Schmid [1]. Although the main claim of [1] is still preserved, we believe the paper needs to be rectified for scientific correctness of the work. In [1], the first High Frequency Switched...

In order to recruit neurons in excitable tissue, constant current neural stimulators are commonly used. Recently, ultra high-frequency (UHF) stimulation has been proposed and proven to have the same efficacy as constant-current stimulation. UHF stimulation uses a fundamentally different way of activating the tissue: each stimulation phase is...

Inspired by insect flights, flapping wing micro air vehicles (FWMAVs) keep attracting attention from the scientific community. One of the design objectives is to reproduce the high power efficiency of insect flight. However, there is no clear answer yet to the question of how to design flapping wings and their kinematics for power-efficient...

Spanwise twist can dominate the deformation of flapping wings and alters the aerodynamic performance and power efficiency of flapping wings by changing the local angle of attack. Traditional Fluid–Structure Interaction (FSI) models, based on Computational Structural Dynamics (CSD) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), have been used to...

Next Generation Sequencing techniques have dramatically reduced the cost of sequencing genetic material, resulting in huge amounts of data being sequenced. The processing of this data poses huge challenges, both from a performance perspective, as well as from a power-efficiency perspective. Heterogeneous computing can help on both fronts, by...

This paper proposes a mm-wave frequency generation technique that improves its phase noise (PN) performance and power efficiency. The main idea is that a fundamental 20 GHz signal and its sufficiently strong third harmonic at 60 GHz are generated simultaneously in a single oscillator. The desired 60 GHz local oscillator (LO) signal is delivered...
