Inventing The Stochastic Analog To Digital Convertor By imec
In any given year, Imec’s patent group receives about 300 invention report sheets, resulting in more than 100 patents per year. These are the documents that their researchers complete when they are convinced that they have found a unique solution. Bob Verbruggen is a regular visitor to that patent group, having written 15 invention reports in less than 10 years. In this article, he talks about his work on analogue-to-digital convertors (ADCs) and his most recent invention — the stochastic ADC.
Blink is a new product line from Sonnet Software that is dedicated to automating and refining the design, electromagnetic simulation, and characterization of high-performance passive devices used in silicon analog mixed-signal and radio frequency integrated circuit design.
