Over the last fifty years, silicon has been the predominant semiconductor in the world of power electronics. Recently a faster, tougher, and more efficient replacement of pure silicon has been introduced; it is the Silicon Carbide (SiC). Several SiC devices are being developed. These devices include Junction Barrier Schottky (JBS) and Schottky Barrier… (More)
This paper presents a functional design and modeling of a successive approximation analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and its application in the conditioning circuit of the vibration energy harvester. The paper published on BMAS'09 highlighted the necessity of a smart digital control to calibrate the system, which requires in turn an ultra low power supplied… (More)
— This paper presents a functional design and mo-deling of a successive approximation analog to digital conver-ter(SAR ADC). The SAR ADC is described in VHDL-AMS behavior models and transistor level circuit netlists using the 0.13µm technology and supply voltage equals to 1.2V. The system was simulated using a signal commercial simulator.
