System-level design of a delta-sigma modulator target for next generation wireless application
Delta-sigma (Δ∑) converters have been widely used in wireless communications as they provide the most economic speed-accuracy tradeoff. This paper presents the system-level design of a multi-bit continuous-time (CT) Δ∑ ...
Requirement for accurate interconnect temperature measurement for electromigration test
In this work, we show accurate temperature measurement is important in electromigration (EM) test as it can affect the measured activation energy EA and current density exponent ...
The politics of consumption in Thailand : back to basics
