• 3D Integration: A New Era for the Integrated Circuit 

      Bakir, Muhannad (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-03-30)
      The information revolution has been the most important economic event of the past century and its most powerful driver has been the silicon integrated circuit (IC). Over the past fifty years, the migration from BJT to ...
    • IMU-on-a-Chip: MEMS and CMOS Microsystems 

      Ayazi, Farrokh (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-02-27)
      The motion of an object in space can be mapped through the use of an inertial measurement unit (IMU), which comprises of accelerometers and gyroscopes. Accelerometers measure linear motion (axial acceleration) while ...
    • MEMS-based Approaches for Overcoming Sensory Loss in the Vestibular and Auditory Systems 

      Bhatti, Pamela (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-03-25)
      Dysfunctions in the vestibular (balance) system often lead to debilitating symptoms of vertigo, disorientation, visual blurring and falls. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for persons over 65 ...
    • Resonant MEMS 

      Brand, Oliver (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-12-08)
      The presentation discusses resonant MEMS and, in particular, resonant microsensors, in which the measurand affects a characteristic of the resonance behavior of a microstructure, such as its resonance frequency or quality ...
    • Silicon-Based Resonant Microsensors 

      Brand, Oliver (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-10-21)
      The presentation gives an introduction to resonant microsensors providing a frequency output signal. These sensors generally benefit from an excellent frequency resolution, which is ideally limited only by the length of ...
    • Temperature Compensated MEMS Reference Oscillators with Sub-PPM Instability 

      Tabrizian, Roozbeh (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-04-23)
      Silicon MEMS oscillators provide several advantages over their quartz crystal counterparts including on-chip integration, small form factor and low phase noise resulted from high Q of the microresonator. However, silicon ...
