A 0.1 PS Resolution Coarse-Fine Time-To-Digital Converter with 2.21 PS Single-Shot Precision
This dissertation proposes a new type of time-to-digital converter based on a resistor-capacitor (RC) delay line that offers low power consumption, high speed and high resolution with error-correction circuitry. The 14-bit, ...
Compact, Non-Invasive, High Impedance Detectors in CMOS for Mm-Wave Applications
This dissertation investigates uses of mm-wave detectors in complementary metal-oxidesemiconductor (CMOS) for affordable mm-wave circuit characterization. The scaling of CMOS technology has brought significant advances ...
Near Millimeter Wave CMOS Receiver and Transmitter
Electromagnetic waves in the millimeter (mm) and sub-millimeter wave (sub-mm) frequency ranges have caught a lot of attention. The waves at these frequencies can interact with gas molecules possessing dipole moments and ...
Novel Sensing Approaches towards Ultimate MEMS Sensors
Within the past few decades, several micro and nano-electromechanical (MEMS and NEMS) accelerometers, magnetometers and vibration sensors utilizing various actuation and sensing mechanisms have been developed and demonstrated. ...
