The design of an UWB pulse generator is presented in the context of low cost applications. The pulse generator is fully integrated in a 0.13 μm CMOS technology and achieves 1Vpp magnitude pulses with only 2.25pJ of energy consumed by pulse and 1.2V voltage supply. The generation method used in this design is well suited for packaged IC using wire(More)
In this paper, an overview of the NEWSKY project is given. This project is funded by the European Commission within the 6th framework program and starts in January 2007. The NEWSKY project is a feasibility study to clarify if it is possible to establish a heterogeneous network for aeronautical communications which is capable to integrate different(More)
This paper presents the design of a fully integrated ultra-wideband (UWB) pulse generator for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) 3.1-10.6-GHz band. This generator is reserved for medium rate applications and achieves pulses for an on-off keying (OOK) modulation, pulse position modulation, or pulse interval modulation. This UWB transmitter is based(More)
The design of a traveling wave amplifier (TWA) in a 0.13 mum standard CMOS technology is presented. It is designed to maximize the gain-bandwidth product (GBP). Asymmetric cascode, coplanar wave guide (CPW) and losses compensation technique allow to maximize the TWA GBP. Design and modeling of 90 Omega CPW used to synthesize inductors TWA's lines is(More)
OBJECTIVES The goals of this pictorial essay are: (1) to set out a multislice computed tomography (MSCT) imaging protocol to assess infective endocarditis (IE); (2) to give an MSCT overview of valvular and peri-valvular involvement during IE; (3) to give a CT overview of septic embolism and infectious pseudoaneurysms during IE. METHODS MSCT acquisition(More)
—In this paper, the RF characteristics of the flexible Kapton-based substrate are investigated by using the microstrip ring resonator in order to characterize the relative permittivity (εr) and loss tangent (tanδ) of the substrate at Ultra Wide Band (UWB) range. A compact notch filter using the approach of phase cancellation between two signal paths is also(More)
