    I am given the opportunity to talk about myself, but my message is simple. I have always tried to be a better analog designer. I will attempt to explain what aspects of my life have contributed to that. Perhaps this will help make you a better designer as well. View full abstract»

  • The Research of Prof. Willy Sansen: An Overview

    Publication Year: 2011, Page(s):12 - 13
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (76 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The author discusses his relationship with Willy Sansen, whom he first met in 1969 when Sansen came to the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department of the University of California, Berkeley, as a new Ph.D. candidate. The author supervised his Ph.D. research in the field of analog integrated circuit (IC) design for the next three years and got to know him well. Sansen arrived a... View full abstract»

    As the author have spent most of his professional life in a mixture of telecoms and semiconductors, talking about the relevance of analog technology to these domains is a fairly obvious choice. And in doing his homework, He came to the conclusion that what happened in this area of industry was not at all easy to foresee. He think it will be valuable to make this history the theme of this article, ... View full abstract»

    In this article we present our view of the impact that Prof. Willy Sansen had during his four-decade-long career of teaching and research. Striving for excellence in both of these areas was key in his work. First we describe the general thread running through Sansen's research work. In one sentence: he developed a continuum extending from circuit-level models created by means of thorough analysis ... View full abstract»

    Broadband connectivity and new ser vices such as YouTube, IP video, and cloud computing are changing our lives, and we would never want to miss out on them. The associated data rates are as predictable as Moore's law, as they are enabled by the availability of low-cost, highly integrated broad band communication ICs. Advanced modulation and coding incorporating sophisticated adaptive signal proces... View full abstract»

    In this article, by means of appropriate circuit design the total efficiency can be optimized. On a circuit level, a high efficiency for an inductive power link can be obtained by using a class E amplifier and an active power regulator. The class E amplifier has three advantages: it has a high efficiency, it has a minimal power consumption when the secondary coil of the inductive link is shorted, ... View full abstract»

    Plastic optical fiber (POF) is a fiber technology developed decades ago to provide low-data-rate communications with easy handling and high immunity to electromagnetic interference. A classic POF data link consists of three parts: a transmitter, a driver, a light source, a communication channel, and a receiver. As an alternative, a POF system potentially provides a higher data rate for longer chan... View full abstract»
