Without using bipolar transistors, serially connected inverter cells generate clock delay according to temperature. The delay is compared with a reference clock to estimate the temperature. The proposed time-to-digital converter (TDC) structure is using a time-domain delta-sigma (ΔΣ) modulator. This type of TDC with ΔΣ modulator can achieve higher... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this brief, we present a capacitance-to-digital converter (CDC) for one-terminal capacitive sensors. The designed CDC implements a digital correction technique to reduce nonidealities and noises, such as the offset, 1/f noise, and power supply noise. This correction technique can also minimize effectively the complexity of the analog front-end circuit. All sensor functions, including analog... Read more on IEEE Xplore

A tunable oscillator, whose frequency is a function of the total charge in the oscillating nodes, is introduced in this brief. Three variants of charge-controlled oscillators (QCOs) that oscillate around 3.6 GHz are presented. The figure-of-merits (FoMs) of these oscillators, obtained from simulation, are 169, 172, and 178 dB, respectively. The measured FoM of the third QCO is 179 dB. We also... Read more on IEEE Xplore
