In most modern electronic systems, information is processed and stored in digital format. However, analog interfaces are still necessary to interface with “real world” signals and often present a bottleneck in the overall system. This presentation will provide an overview of recent advances and trends in the design of analog-digital interface circuits from an application standpoint. It will include examples from the areas of data communication, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), bio-medical instrumentation, structural health monitoring, and large-area electronics.


Speaker’s Bio:

Boris Murmann is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford, CA. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 2003. From 1994 to 1997, he was with Neutron Mikrolektronik, Germany, where he developed low-power and smart-power ASICs in automotive CMOS technology. Dr. Murmann’s research interests are in the area of mixed-signal integrated circuit design, with special emphasis on data converters and sensor interfaces. In 2008, he was a co-recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the VLSI Circuits Symposium in 2008 and a recipient of the Best Invited Paper Award at the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC). In 2009, he received the Agilent Early Career Professor Award. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, the Data Converter Subcommittee Chair of the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) and as a program committee member of the European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC). He is a Distinguished Lecturer and elected AdCom member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.


Event Organizers:

This tutorial is part of Training Program Series on Emerging Technologies, organized by PACE with the support of technical society chapters. This program’s objective is to educate IEEE members in the Silicon Valley on emerging technologies.

IEEE Professional Activities Committee for Engineers,Santa Clara Valley Section (IEEE SCV PACE)

IEEE Santa Clara Valley(SCV) Section’s  Professional Activities Committee for Engineers (PACE), promotes the professional interests of IEEE’s U.S. members and provides a mechanism for communication of members’ views on their professional needs. Activities include Technical Training courses, Workshops on career issues (networking, career planning, career transitions, personal financial planning); skill training workshops (entrepreneurship, effective speaking, technical writing), and Government Policy as it affects Engineering and Technology.

The SCV, more popularly known as Silicon Valley, is the largest IEEE Section in the world in terms of membership (around 12,000 members in Santa Clara Valley Section)as well as active chapters.
