Title: Ultra Low-power Analog Front-end Design 

Abstract: 
This talk, based on a recent publication at ISSCC 2015, discusses the design of a nano-power analog front-end including pre-amplification and analog-to-digital conversion. It starts with fundamentals on power-efficiency in analog and mixed-signal circuits. It also describes considerations in terms of low-voltage operation and PVT reliability. After that, the presentation discusses one complete system implementation in more detail, including the amplifier, ADC, biasing stages and clock generation.

Biography: 
Pieter Harpe received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. In 2008, he joined Holst Centre / imec where he worked on low-power ADCs. He joined Eindhoven University of Technology in April 2011, where he is currently an associate professor on low-power mixed-signal circuits. His main interests include power-efficient and reconfigurable data converters and low-power analog design. He is a TPC member for ISSCC, ESSCIRC and AACD, and serves as Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. He is recipient of the IEEE ISSCC 2015 Distinguished Technical Paper Award.

This talk is being presented in conjunction with the IEEE Solid-state Circuits Society.
