—This paper describes the design, implementation, and characterization of a monolithic charge amplification channel for use as a piezoelectric sensor front-end in extreme environment applications. 12 The design leverages a 50 GHz peak-f T SiGe BiCMOS technology platform to achieve functionality across a wide-temperature range from-180ºC to 120ºC. As part of… (More)

— High speed channel (HSC) resistive sensor interface is an analog sampling channel designed for measuring the resistance variations with data rate at 5 kHz. It measures the external resistance variation and digitizes the received signal using a 12-bit analog to digital converter (ADC). The HSC includes a Wheatstone bridge with programmable configurations,… (More)
