This paper reports a versatile nano-sensor technology using "top-down" poly-silicon nanowire field-effect transistors (FETs) in the conventional Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS)-compatible semiconductor process. The nanowire manufacturing technique reduced nanowire width scaling to 50 nm without use of extra lithography equipment, and(More)
This paper proposes a selective pattern-compression scheme to minimize both test power and test data volume during scan-based testing. The proposed scheme will selectively supply the test patterns either through the <i>compressed scan chain</i> whose scanned values will be decoded to the original scan cells, or directly through the original scan chain using(More)
This study proposes a vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) biosensor for diagnosing various stages of cervical carcinoma. In addition, VEGF concentrations at various stages of cancer therapy are determined and compared to data obtained by computed tomography (CT) and cancer antigen 125 (CA-125). The increase in VEGF concentrations during operations(More)
Polysilicon nanowire (poly-Si NW) based biosensor is integrated with the wireless acquisition circuits in a standard CMOS SoC for the first time. To improve detection quality, a chopper DDA-based analog front-end with features of low noise, high CMRR, and rail-to-rail input range is implemented. Additional temperature sensor is also included to compensate(More)
This paper presents a performance based comparative study of various fuzzy logic controllers (FLCs) to control the speed of squirrel-cage induction motor (SCIM) by replacing the conventional proportional??integral (PI) controller. The fuzzy logic based controller does not require any identification of motor dynamic to control its speed and also assures the(More)
This paper proposes a generic multi-dimensional scan shift control concept for multiple scan chain design. Multiple scan chain test scheme provides very low scan power by skipping (selectively load/unload) many long scan chain switching activities. Based on the two-dimensional scan shift control, we can achieve low test power with simple and small overhead(More)
