    Parylene C is being explored as an encapsulant coating for bulk micromachined silicon piezoresistive pressure sensor devices that will be used in harsh environments, including: salt water, acids, bases, and fuels. However, coated pressure sensors have been observed to undergo change in both sensitivity (volt- age...

    Subscriber radios have a need to scan for multi- ple different accessories at their accessory connec- tor. Traditionally, options are detected using a binary coding scheme shown below in Figure 1. Each acces- sory is assigned a different combination of Rl and R2 values so that a unique binary code is presented...

    The term "transducer" applies to any piezoelec- tric devices which perform the transformation of elec- tric energy to mechanical energy or vice versa. One example of such a transducer is the piezoelectric thin film resonator which can be potentially used as RF filters, IF filters, chemical sensors, and pressure...

    There are times when "Time-to-Market" is more important than the cost of silicon. One example is when entering a new market where there is already competition. Bringing a new device into a market significantly later than other devices results fin loss of market share. Another example is when a spe- cific customer...

    This paper describes the architecture and bene- fits of a new application program MERGE-TABLE. This program creates a single truth table model which describes the fimctionality of two digital com- ponents given a specification of the signals or nets which interconnect them and a specification of the truth tables for...

    Zener Diodes' have been commonly used for ESD protection circuits. Traditional Zener imple- mentation can cause severe leakage due to surface conditions. Consequently, the I/O circuits can be very leaky under normal operation conditions and products will not meet specs. New method of mak- ing low leakage current...

    Multibit quantizers in sigma delta analog to dig- ital converters increase the achievable SNDR by reducing the quantization noise power by approxi- mately 6dB/bit. However, when a multibit quantizer is used in the feedback loop of a classic sigma delta ADC, the multibit DAC that generates the feedback signal must be...

    The energy ofa digital CMOS circuit is given by E = 1/2CV2, where C is the loading capacitance being switched and V is the amount ofvoltage swing. By looking at this equation, the best way to reduce the energy consumption is to reduce the voltage swing, due to its squared relationship. For static CMOS, this amounts to...
