A 3Mega-Pixel back illuminated image sensor in 1T5 architecture and 1.45μm pixel pitch has been successfully developed and characterized. A high quantum efficiency over 60% in the visible light spectrum and a low dark current of 1e/s at 25°C have been achieved due to dedicated frontside and backside process steps such as antireflective layer adaptation, p(More)
This paper presents a low area, low consumption, 40 GHz low noise amplifier (LNA), a down-converter and an oscillator, from which the performance of a 40 GHz wireless receiver can be estimated. The circuits were realized using a post-processing BCB above-IC technology and 0.13 mum SiGe:C BiCMOS HBT process, and their performance are compared with those(More)
In recent years, a very large amount of scientific work has been achieved around Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS). Some industrial success stories (accelerometers, gyroscopes and MOEMS) have shown their maturity. MEMS are now starting to take place around us in our everyday life as the microelectronic did 20 years ago. However, a lot of effort is(More)
