    Demonstrates that low cost, low power sonar signal acquisition systems with dynamic ranges in excess of 120 dB have been routinely produced using hybrid technology. The converters exploit the passive component matching available in hybrid technology and whilst the analogue integrated circuits used are commercially available parts, the digital circuitry needs to be fabricated as a custom ASIC (arou...

    Presents important features of the 1553B Field Bus system and its limitations for industrial applications. The specification for a low cost industrial Field Bus interface device is then discussed as is the relevant design and implementation issues. The device has enhanced transmission capability 62.5 kbit/s over 2 km and is directly implementable in ASIC using a mixture of CMOS and thick film hybr... View full abstract»

    There is a growing receptiveness in the automotive market place to the principle of smart sensors. The time is now ripe to begin exploiting the benefits of bus communication, digital signal processing and fault diagnosis. ASIC's will permit the degree of integration required to control costs in production while allowing libraries of components to be assembled cheaply and easily on a workstation to...

    Summary form only given. Outlines the design and simulation of an instrumentation amplifier analogue cell for incorporation into an ASIC sub-system for smart sensors. The ASIC will be fabricated using ES2's 1 μm CMOS n-well process. The existing analogue library for this process does not contain high specification devices which can be used as low-frequency programmable gain instrumentation ampl... View full abstract»

    There are two prime motives for the development of smart sensors. The first is to achieve internal compensation of defects, especially for multisensor systems. The second prime motive is to take advantage of developments in digital signal transmission. Serial digital multi-drop buses are robust and economical. These are important factors when one takes into consideration the increasingly hostile e... View full abstract»

    The aim of the project described is to produce a high resolution hand-held ultrasonic scanner. The transducer elements use PVDF polymer technology. The control electronics are being designed within the Electronic Engineering department. A major objective is to reduce the size of the circuitry such that the driving components are mounted as close as possible to the transducer elements. This minimis... View full abstract»

    The principle objective of the Link Scheme `ASICs for Smart Sensors' Research Programme is to develop a library of ASIC building blocks, or cells, that can be combined in a structured way to produce ASICs for a wide variety of smart sensor applications. By adopting a building block approach, it is the intention that ASICs covering a wide variety of different intelligent sensor types can be created... View full abstract»
