This paper presents a discrete time 2-1 MASH Delta-Sigma (ΔΣ) modulator with multirate opamp sharing for analog-to-digital converters, targeting the optimization of power efficiency in active blocks, such as opamps and quantizers. Through the allocation of different settling times to the opamps and by adopting the multirate technique, the power of the shared opamps is utilized more e... View full abstract»

The instrumentation systems for implantable brain- machine interfaces represent one of the most demanding applications for ultra low-power analogue-to-digital-converters (ADC) to date. To address this challenge, this paper proposes a ΔΣSAR topology for very large sensor arrays that allows an exceptional reduction in silicon footprint by using a continuous time 0-2MASH topology.

| | PDF (3534 KB) | HTML

This paper demonstrates an input impedance boosting method that was developed for long-term monitoring of electroencephalography signals. An instrumentation amplifier was designed with a negative capacitance generation feedback (NCGFB) technique to cancel the adverse effects of input capacitances from electrode cables and printed circuit boards. The NCGFB boosts the measured impedance from below 4... View full abstract»

• ### Design of A Novel Highly EMI-Immune CMOS Miller OpAmp Considering Channel Length Modulation

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2679 - 2690

This paper presents a novel CMOS Miller operational amplifier (OpAmp) that has high immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI). The proposed CMOS Miller OpAmp uses the replica concept with the source-buffered technique in order to achieve high EMI immunity across a wide range of frequencies (10 MHz to 1 GHz). The proposed amplifier is designed using the first-order quadratic mathematical model... View full abstract»

Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (3214 KB) | HTML

We present a 1.62-5.4-Gb/s receiver for DisplayPort version 1.2a and propose an adaptive equalizer (EQ) with a peak-level comparison technique for eye measurement. A single comparator and an up/down unmatched-current charge pump are used to realize a simpler EQ architecture with low power dissipation. A referenceless frequency acquisition technique is also proposed. A time-to-digital converter-bas... View full abstract»

• ### Analysis and Design of Bang-Bang PD-Based Phase Noise Filter

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2703 - 2713
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (3189 KB) | HTML

In this paper, we present a bang-bang phase detector (BBPD) and a delay-line frequency discriminator-based phase noise filter (PNF). With a larger phase detection gain, the BBPD-based PNF enhances the sensitivity by suppressing the charge pump noise. A time-amplifier and a five times voting machine are introduced together with the sense-amplifier-flip-flop to minimize the BBPD noise to make its ef... View full abstract»

• ### Simplified Unified Analysis of Switched-RC Passive Mixers, Samplers, and $N$ -Path Filters Using the Adjoint Network

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2714 - 2725
| | PDF (2173 KB) | HTML

Recent innovations in software defined CMOS radio transceiver architectures heavily rely on high-linearity switched-RC sampler and passive-mixer circuits, driven by digitally programmable multiphase clocks. Although seemingly simple, the frequency domain analysis of these linear periodically time variant (LPTV) circuits is often deceptively complex. This paper uses the properties of sampled LPTV s...

• ### Modeling and Mitigation of Static Noise Margin Variation in Subthreshold SRAM Cells

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2726 - 2736
| | PDF (2209 KB) | HTML

In energy-constrained applications, SRAM systems operating in the subthreshold region are often deployed to reduce power consumption. Subthreshold SRAM designs, however, confront numerous challenges, such as susceptibility to process variation and reduced ON-OFF current ratio. Statistical modeling of the variation in cell stability is critical in SRAM design, especially, for designs operating in t... View full abstract»

• ### Pre-Charged Local Bit-Line Sharing SRAM Architecture for Near-Threshold Operation

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2737 - 2747
| | PDF (1886 KB) | HTML

In this paper, a pre-charged local bit-line sharing (PCLBS) static random access memory (SRAM) for nearthreshold operation is proposed. In previous local bit-line sharing SRAMs, such as average-8T and full-swing local bit-line (FSLB) SRAMs, multiple bit-cells share a local bit-line pair with a small capacitance for high read stability. However, the average8T SRAM has a considerably large delay bec... View full abstract»

• ### On Turing Instability in Nonhomogeneous Reaction-Diffusion CNN’s

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2748 - 2760
| | PDF (3352 KB) | HTML

Several results on instability in nonhomogeneous architectures able to generate Turing patterns are presented. The approach makes use of the continuity theorem regarding the dependence of polynomial roots on coefficients and of the root-locus techniques for small, and large parameter deviations from their homogeneous values, respectively. The results are valid for any linearized nonhomogeneous dis... View full abstract»

• ### Interplay Between Spreading and Random Walk Processes in Multiplex Networks

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2761 - 2771
| | PDF (1767 KB) | HTML

Real networks in our surrounding are usually complex and composite by nature and they consist of many interwoven layers. The commutation of agents (nodes) across layers in these composite multiplex networks heavily influences the underlying dynamical processes, such as information, idea and disease spreading, synchronization, consensus, etc. In order to understand how the agents' dynamics and the ...

• ### On Existence of Equilibria of Multi-Port Linear AC Networks With Constant-Power Loads

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2772 - 2782
| | PDF (1535 KB) | HTML

In this paper we give an answer to the following question. Given a multi-port, linear ac network with instantaneous constant-power loads identify a set of active and reactive load powers for which there is no steady-state operating condition of the network-in this case, we say that the power load is inadmissible. The identification is given in terms of feasibility of simple linear matrix inequalit... View full abstract»

• ### Distributed Filtering for Switched Linear Systems With Sensor Networks in Presence of Packet Dropouts and Quantization

Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):2783 - 2796
| | PDF (2160 KB) | HTML

This paper is concerned with the distributed H∞ filtering problem of discrete-time switched linear systems in sensor networks in face of packet dropouts and quantization. Specifically, due to the packet dropout phenomenon, the filters may lose access to the real-time switching signal of the plant. It is assumed that the maximal packet dropout number of switching signal is bounded... View full abstract»

The systematic design analysis of a hybrid optoelectronic limiting receiver is presented. The limiting receiver was designed in the IBM 130-nm CMOS process and side-by-side wire bonded to a commercial high-speed InGaAs/InP PIN photodiode. The CMOS die and the optical die were chip-on-board (COB) mounted on the Printed Circuit Board. Partition between small signal in the linear region and large-sig... View full abstract»

List decoding is a promising technique for machine type communications (MTC) and other applications that pursue the high-coding gain of convolutional codes. However, there are obstacles that degrade the availability of list decoding. In specific, non-tail-biting list decoding involves high demands of data storage, while tail-biting list decoding requires substantial computational resources to pres... View full abstract»
