  • Fully Integrated Mixed Mode Interface Circuit in 65 nm CMOS for Leukemia Detection and Classification

    Lab on a Chip (LOC) applications are taking the world by storm. This paper proposes a mixed mode interface circuit for LOC applications for Bioimpedance measurement. The interface circuit consists of a low noise instrumentation amplifier and an analog to digital converter. The proposed interface circuit utilizes the benefits of both current mode and voltage mode circuits. The design of the instrumentation amplifier uses a second-generation current conveyor to provide the low noise and high gain required to acquire the weak signal from the electrodes. The IA provides a maximum gain of 55.6 dB with 2 MHz bandwidth. A second order Sigma Delta Modulator with a maximum sampling rate of 128 MS/s provides the output digital bit stream capable of reaching a resolution of 11 bits for an input sinusoidal with 50 kHz frequency. The use of a buffered comparator allows the relaxation on the slew rate requirement while maintaining a high sampling rate. The full system power consumption is 5.5 mW with a chip area of only 0.0153 mm2.

  • Mixed mode interface characterization considering thermal residual stress

    Interfacial delamination has become one of the key reliability issues in the microelectronic industry and therefore is getting more and more attention. The analysis of delamination of a laminate structure with a crack along the interface is central to the characterization of interfacial toughness. Due to the mismatch in mechanical properties of the materials adjacent to the interface and also possible asymmetry of loading and geometry, usually the crack propagates under mixed mode conditions. The present study deals with delamination toughness measurements of an epoxy molding compound - copper lead frame interface as directly obtained from a real production process. As a consequence the specimen dimensions are relatively small and therefore a dedicated small-size test set-up was designed and fabricated. The test setup allows transferring two separated loadings (mode I and mode II) on a single specimen. The setup is flexible and adjustable for measuring specimens with various dimensions. For measurements under various temperatures and moisture conditions, a special climate chamber is designed. The ldquocurrent crack lengthrdquo is required for the interpretation of measurement results through FEM-fracture mechanics simulations. Therefore, during testing the ldquocurrent crack lengthrdquo is captured using a CCD camera and a micro deformation analysis system (MicroDac). The critical fracture properties are obtained by interpreting the experimental results through dedicated finite element modeling.

  • Simulation techniques for mixed analog/digital circuits

    The techniques used in the iSPLICE3 simulator for the analysis of mixed analog/digital circuits are described. iSPLICE3 combines circuit, switch-level timing, and logic simulation modes and uses event driven selective-trace techniques. It also uses a hierarchical schematic capture package called iSPI (Simulation Program Interface) for design entry, circuit partitioning, and simulation control. The contributions here include a new DC solution method, a mixed-mode interface modeling technique, and an automatic partitioning approach for MOS logic circuits. The details of these three methods are provided, along with the architecture and transient simulation algorithms used in iSPLICE3. The results of circuit simulations and mixed-mode simulations of a CMOS static RAM, two A/D converters, and a phase-locked loop are presented. These results indicate that iSPLICE3 is between one and two orders of magnitude faster than SPICE2 with negligible loss in accuracy.<<ETX>>

  • A prototype IEEE 1451.4 smart transducer interface for sensors and actuators

    Analog transducers (sensors or actuators) are widely used in industry. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451.4 standard defines a mixed-mode communication protocol and the Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) formats for analog transducers. This standard enables the plug- and-play capability of analog transducers and easy integration of analog transducers with measurement and control systems. This paper describes a prototype of the IEEE 1451.4 one-wire interface for analog transducers. The prototype system developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) consists of an IEEE 1451.4-based transducer, a one-wire interface board, and a single board computer (SBC). An example of reading the IEEE 1451.4 TEDS from an IEEE 1451.4-compatible accelerometer is provided to illustrate system functionality.

  • Enabling mixed-mode analysis of nano-scale SiGe BiCMOS technologies in extreme environments

    The latest enhancements to NanoTCAD mixed-mode software package, combining 3D physics-based nano-scale device models and unique mixed-mode interface to the Cadence Spectre circuit simulator, have enabled simulations and in-operation analysis of ionizing radiation single event effects (SEEs) in modern high- speed SiGe BiCMOS technologies and integrated circuits. Additionally, the NanoTCAD new, automated interface to Geant4 radiation models and the 3D solver capability to model very low temperature behavior, enable a comprehensive and accurate modeling of radiation effects in nano-scale systems, in the extreme radiation and temperature environments of space. Example simulations of SEEs affecting digital output of a 7.2GHz mixed-signal circuit are presented. Our mixed-mode modeling results compare very well with experimental data.

  • A combined ISO/IEC/IEEE 21451-4 and -2 data acquisition module

    A prototype is described which combines the TEDS-only (-4) and point-to-point serial (-2) versions of the IEEE 1451 standard. The standard, now being renamed the ISO/IEC/IEEE 21451-x smart transducer standards, provides a protocol which permits autoconfiguration (plug and play) and interoperability without operator intervention implemented. The Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) is a key feature. While the TEDS-only version has achieved significant acceptance, there are drawbacks to the standard as it stands because it does not specify the digital data format and the TEDS format differs from the rest of the 1451 standard. Specifically, the ISO/IEC/ IEEE 21451-4 Mixed Mode Interface Smart Transducer Standard has a Plug and Play Sensor which includes a TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet). It is connected through the Mixed-Mode Interface (MMI) to an external data acquisition system whose specification are not specified by the standard. However, the ISO/IEC/IEEE 21450 Smart Transducer Standard does specify the digital data format in detail. Specifically described here is a prototype of the ISO/IEC/IEEE 21451-2 standard for point-to-point serial communication. It consists of a Transducer Interface Module (TIM) and a Network Capable Application Processor (NCAP). The TIM has a transducer (sensor or actuator), associated analog signal conditioner, analog-to-digital converter, TEDS, microcomputer and physical layer driver (RS232). The prototype consists of an NCAP (gateway) connected to a -2 style TIM which has with several -4 ports. The format of the -4 and -2 are differ significantly. Data from the TIM via the NCAP as seen from the Internet must have the 21450 format so that it is necessary to translate the -4 TEDS. An optional “virtual TEDS” is stored at an Internet site. The TEDS on the TIM stores only the address of the TEDS in addition to the Basic TEDS.
