    In this article we describe a novel sub-micron analog VLSI circuit which can be used as a cascode current source, current mirror, or transresistance stage amplifier with maximum output swing capability. The described circuit, which is also viewed as a “super-MOS” device, displays both gain-boosting and optimum biasing of the cascode stage for low-voltage applications View full abstract»

    Micromachining and microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology have enabled the unprecedented cost/performance ratio of thermal ink jet (TIJ) products that currently dominate the desktop color printing market. The generic TIJ operating principles are based on an intimate blend of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and large-scale integration (LSI) electronics. This article introduces the generic ...

    We have successfully demonstrated the integration of an ultrasensitive III-V detector, based on a differential pair of optical thyristors, with a dedicated novel 1 GHz CMOS comparator amplifier followed by an R-S flip flop. The maximum frequency achieved so far for the receiver is 50 MHz. Further work is underway to improve this limit to at least the frequency achievable with the thyristor pair, i...

    The best way to switch the direction of an optical beam is simply to rotate a mirror, focus an optical beam by mechanically translating a lens, or extinguish an unwanted optical beam by physically blocking its path. Recent, independent developments in microelectromechanical (MEM) devices promise to remedy the issue of high cost and unreliability associated with the “moving parts” neede... View full abstract»

    The Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems (MWSCAS) is the oldest continuously operating conference devoted to circuits and systems in the United States, and as the 40th meeting is scheduled to be held in Sacramento, California, on August 3-6, 1997, it is felt that the history of this conference should be recorded before facts about its origins and its past are forgotten and lost forever View full abstract»
