  1. 1. The Buried Oxide of Silicon on Insulator Materials

    Author : Per Ericsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : oxide defects; internal oxidation; aluminum oxide; wafer bonding; SOI; silicon on insulator; buried oxide;

    Abstract : The buried oxide of silicon on insulator (SOI) wafers plays an important role in the operation of electronic devices made on such materials. The presence of defects in the buried oxide can seriously degrade the performance of a circuit. READ MORE

  2. 2. Implementation of Flash Analog-to-Digital Converters in Silicon-on-Insulator Technology

    Author : Erik Säll; Mark Vesterbacka; Bengt E. Jonsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flash analog-to-digital converter; ADC; silicon-on-insulator; SOI; top-down design; dynamic element matching; DEM; thermometer-to-binary encoder; flash ADC modeling; Electronics; Elektronik;

    Abstract : High speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) used in, e.g., read channel and ultra wideband (UWB) applications are often based on a flash topology. The read channel applications is the intended application of this work, where a part of the work covers the design of two different types of 6-bit flash ADCs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Submillimeter-Wave Waveguide Frontends by Silicon-on-Insulator Micromachining

    Author : Adrian Gomez-Torrent; Joachim Oberhammer; Umer Shah; Goutam Chattopadhyay; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; antenna; orthomode transducer; switch; waveguide; radiofrequency; beamforming network; submillimeter-wave; terahertz; silicon micromachining; deep reactive ion etching; silicon on insulator; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents novel radiofrequency (RF) frontend components in the submillimeter-wave (sub-mmW) range implemented by silicon micromachining, or deep reactive ion etching (DRIE). DRIE is rapidly becoming a driving technology for the fabrication of waveguide components and systems when approaching the terahertz (THz) frequency range. READ MORE

  4. 4. Implementation of Flash Analog-to-Digital Converters in Silicon-on-Insulator CMOS Technology

    Abstract : More and more electronic products, like battery chargers and power supplies, as well as applications in telecommunications and automotive electronics are based on System-on-Chip solutions, where signal processing and power devices are integrated on the same chip. The integration of different functional units offers many advantages in terms of reliability, reduced power consumption, weight and space reduction, leading to products with better performance at a hopefully lower price.
