Quantum computers exploit the quantum behavior of quantum bits (qubits) that are typically operated at cryogenic temperature. Qubits require an electronic control interface. Nowadays, such classical electronic controllers use bulky instruments operated far fromthe qubits outside the cryostat. To run practical quantum algorithms, thousands to...

With the requirements for CubeSats increasing, a push towards utilizing high­performance equipment has never been greater. Incorporating these equipment in an environment that is cost­, space­ and power­constrained, is challenging. Simultaneously, high­performance equipment require high pointing­accuracy and low­jitter. This thesis proposes the...

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...

Today’s systems-on-chip (SOCs) and microprocessors are complex systems that require multiple temperature sensors to monitor temperature variations in multiple spots on a single silicon die. For such thermal management applications, specialized compact and fast temperature sensors are required. This is necessary because executing an intensive...

This brief proposes employing each of the classical 4 transistor (4T) pinned photodiode (PPD) CMOS image sensor (CIS) pixels, for both imaging and temperature measurement, intended for compensating the CISs' dark current, and dark signal non-uniformity (DSNU). The proposed temperature sensors rely on the thermal behavior of MOSFETs working in...

This paper describes a compact resistor-based temperature sensor that has been realized in a 180-nm CMOS process. It occupies only 6800 μ m<sup>2</sup>, thanks to the use of a highly digital voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO)-based phase-domain sigma-delta modulator, whose loop filter consists of a compact digital counter. Despite its small...

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...

Cardiac signal acquisition with high linearity and accuracy of the high-pass cut-off frequency imposes a challenge on the implementation of the analog preprocessing and the analog-to-digital converter. This paper describes a state-space-based methodology for designing high-pass sigma-delta (HP Sigma \Delta topologies with high linearity,...

This paper presents a direct digital converter for Wheatstone bridge sensors, which is realized with commercial off-the-shelf components. The power efficiency of the readout is enhanced by embedding the bridge sensor in a second-order continuous-time sigma-delta modulator (CTDeltaSigmaM). By directly digitizing the output signal of a Wheatstone...

An array of temperature sensors based on the thermal diffusivity (TD) of bulk silicon has been realized in a standard 40-nm CMOS process. In each TD sensor, a highly digital voltage-controlled oscillator-based Σ Δ ADC digitizes the temperature-dependent phase shift of an electrothermal filter (ETF). A phase calibration scheme is used to...

VCO-based phase-domain ΣΔ modulators employ the combination of a voltage-controlled-oscillator (VCO) and an up/down counter to replace the analog loop filter used in conventional ΣΔ modulators. Thanks to this highly digital architecture, they can be quite compact, and are expected to shrink even further with CMOS scaling. This paper describes...

Every year number of prematurely born infants grows. Most underdeveloped organ after birth is brain. Therefore its monitoring is very important, especially as it can provide indications about health state in a future, both short and long term. Non invasive method of brain monitoring is EEG recording. However tedious process of system set up and...

A highly digital temperature sensor, based on the thermal diffusivity of silicon, for thermal management applications has been reported. Recently, Thermal-Diffusivity based temperature sensors have undergone a radical change from an analog-based readout architecture to a more digital VCO-based one. However the more digital approach led to...

Distance measurement using ultrasonic waves is employed in a wide range of industrial applications. In this thesis our main goal is to investigate the possibility of processing ultrasonic signals with a ??-modulator and to process its bitstream output signal with the cross-correlation technique, while being independent of the transducer that is...

This thesis describes the theory, design and implementation of a new class of integrated temperature sensors, based on heat diffusion. In such sensors, temperature is sensed by measuring the time it takes for heat to diffuse through silicon. An on-chip thermal delay can be determined by geometry and the thermal diffusivity of silicon, and since...

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...
