Conférencier: Jordi Madrenas , Technical University of Catalunya

Résumé: The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the electrostatic MEMS conditioning issues and VLSI circuits suitable, but not limited, to this purpose. After reviewing the requirements of electrostatic MEMS sensors and actuators, the control architecture and several analog VLSI circuits that have been implemented are described and analyzed. In particular, a translinear CMOS element and programmable array, a compact minimum-maximum current detector and an asynchronous-logic-based control scheme for dynamic power converter. Finally, development and preliminary experimental results on MEMS designed in standard CMOS technology are presented.

Note biographique: Jordi Madrenas received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunication Engineering from the Technical University of Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 1986 and 1991, respectively. He is currently Associate Professor at the Department of Electronic Engineering, UPC. Between 2000 and 2003 he was Vice-Dean of Studies of the Telecommunication Engineering School of Barcelona, UPC.
