Micromechanical Resonator based oscillators are a promising technology for replacing quartz crystal based oscillators. In this work, we will report the effects of mechanical vibrations and bias voltage noise on the phase noise performance of electrostatic MEMS resonator based oscillators. Accurate models for both these effects are discussed along with their(More)
Micromachined power sensors with operation up to 50 GHz were recently achieved in CMOS technology [1]. To improve their sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio, while maintaining microwave performance, several design parameters must be considered, such as the number and placement of thermocouples. This paper presents experimental and analytical thermal(More)
A new microcomputer-controlled instrument that tests contrast acuity is described. It displays a range of Sloan optotype sets at five different levels between 3 and 95% contrast. The spatial contrast acuities of two groups were compared with this instrument. The first group consisted of 68 eyes of patients with posterior subcapsular cataracts whose(More)
