Ungan, IE
Askar, M
A wired-AND current-mode logic (WCML) circuit technique in CMOS technology for low-voltage and high-speed VLSI circuits is proposed, and a WCML cell library is developed using standard 0.8 micron CMOS process. The proposed WCML technique applies the analog circuit design methodologies to the digital circuit design, The input and output logic signals are represented by current quantities. The supply current of the logic circuit is adjustable for the required logic speed and the switching noise level. The noise is reduced on the power supply lines and in the substrate by the current-steering technique and by the smooth swing of the reduced node potentials. Precise analog circuits and fast digital circuits can be integrated on the same silicon substrate by using the low noise property of the WCML. It is shown by the simulations that at low supply voltages, the WCML is faster and generates less switching noise when compared to the static-CMOS logic. At high speeds, the power dissipation of the WCML is less than that of the static-CMOS logic.


A Low-power memory CMOS integrated circuit for image sensors
Üstündağ, Mithat Cem Boreyda; Akın, Tayfun; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
This thesis presents a low power SRAM block implemented in a 0.35 μm CMOS technology for imaging applications to be used inside a digital image processor ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit). The SRAM structure is designed to be fast enough to store all the image data fed by a large format readout circuitry such as VGA (640x512), while requiring low power consumption. The low power consumption is a very critical requirement of such circuit, as the circuit will eventually be used in an embedded pla...
A High-Performance PWM Algorithm for Common-Mode Voltage Reduction in Three-Phase Voltage Source Inverters
Hava, Ahmet Masum (2011-07-01)
A high-performance pulsewidth modulation (PWM) algorithm with reduced common-mode voltage (CMV) and satisfactory overall performance is proposed for three-phase PWM inverter drives. The algorithm combines the near-state PWM (NSPWM) method that has superior overall performance characteristics at high modulation index, and MAZSPWM, a modified form of the active zero-state PWM method (AZSPWM1), which is suitable for low modulation index range of operation. Since AZSPWM1 has line-to-line voltage pulse reversals...

This paper discusses the implementation of a low-cost 128 x 128 uncooled infrared microbolometer detector array together with its integrated readout circuit (ROC) using a standard 0.35 mu m n-well CMOS and post-CMOS MEMS processes. The detector array can be created with simple bulk-micromachining processes after the CMOS fabrication, without the need for any complicated lithography or deposition steps. The array detectors are based on suspended p(+)-active/n-well diode microbolometers with a pixel size of 4...

This thesis explains the implementation of a digital programmable Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) designed for imaging applications. The primary function of this ASIC is to drive imaging sensors and to do basic processing on the digital video data coming from the sensors. The ASIC is designed to handle the communication between the imaging sensor and the system. Using command based high-level instructions, this two-way communication is simplified. The ASIC can also be used to store and update...

Un, Emre; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2007-05-05)
The Near State PWM (NSPWM) method, which reduces the common mode voltage/current, is proposed for three-phase PWM inverter drives. The optimal voltage vectors and their sequences are determined. The voltage linearity and DC bus and AC output PWM current ripple characteristics are studied. The method is thoroughly investigated and its performance is compared to conventional methods. Theory, simulations, and experiments show that NSPWM exhibits superior common mode and satisfactory PWM ripple performance char...
