A fully synthesized 0.4-V analog biquad filter in a 0.13-μm CMOS technology using digital standard cells. In contrast to a custom-designed inverter-based amplifier in the conventional design, a new NAND-/NOR-gate-based micro-operational amplifier (uOP) operating in weak inversion is proposed. … Read More
The AMS Lab has developed a family of logic devices that are resistant against optical reverse engineering. Our threshold voltage device logic family, coined E-TVD, achieves 40% less power, 45% speed improvement and 34% smaller footprint when compared to conventional… Read More
The Correlated Dual Loop Sturdy MASH (CDL-SMASH) removes the need for explicit quantization error extraction, while still retaining all of the benefits of SMASH and MASH architectures such as improved loop stability, and aggressive noise shaping. Abstract: This article… Read More
Novel VCO-driven chopping technique enables 42dB SNR with 800uV peak to peak input signal while consuming less than 2 uW. The technique uses a VCO quantizer to generate a speudo-random chopping frequency without the need for complicated circuitry associated with… Read More
Researchers at UF AMSLab recently produced a Physically Unclonable Function (PUF) with less than 1.2% native instability by leveraging the resistance variation of metal vias. The target performance was achieved without the use of stabilization techniques.
