    We presented a new silicon optoelectronic receiver in standard CMOS for synchronous detection of light. Two versions were implemented in a 0.7-μm N-well CMOS technology and tested. In the better version, the light-sensitive junctions were the drains of NMOSFETs. This version operated at up to 180 MHz with external 830-nm light pulses of 176 fJ. Our new receiver shows an excellent trade-off... View full abstract»

    Effective technical communication is becoming more and more imperative in the success of just about any business enterprise, whether for-profit or not-for-profit, large or small, regardless of the industry or markets. Creating an impact is critical. In order to create that impact, the message must be carefully distilled for clarity, accuracy, and conciseness. This article applies to both written a...

    This article reports on a passive self-alignment technique that we developed for semiconductor waveguide array packaging. A flip-chip Si-motherboard technique is described for the packaging of 4-, 8-, and 12-channel 980 nm laser arrays with fiber ribbons. A major aspect of this development is also to show that minor modifications on an existing laser fabrication process, carried out at the IBM Zur... View full abstract»

    The author shows theoretically using a matrix representation of the small-signal response that a bipolar transistor circuit usually used as a current source can be modified to form a second-generation current conveyor. This element is useful in synthesis of active filters and high-speed amplifiers View full abstract»

    The conception, design fabrication, and test of a demonstrator of a low-cost flowmeter for washing machines and other home appliances has been described in this article. Mechanical, thermal, and electric simulations were required to set the parameters of the system, and links between thermal and electrical domains were established through SPICE-equivalent circuits. Closed-loop measurements using a... View full abstract»

    In order to meet the requirements for multimedia applications, several approaches to DRAM architecture have emerged. Instead of a single, common memory device, several advanced approaches, such as extended data out (EDO) DRAM, and synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) will each play a major role in the future memory market. Furthermore, advanced interface technologies, such as Rambus RAM (RDRAM), RamLink, and ... View full abstract»
