“Time-Based Circuits – not just the Single Slope!” by Dr. Matt Straayer from Maxim Integrated Inc.

Date: May 18th, 2017

IEEE SCV CAS proudly co-sponsors the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Solid States Circuits Society upcoming technical talk on Part I of two-part seminars on Time-Based Circuits on Thursday May 18, 2017 by Dr. Matt Straayer from Maxim Integrated Inc. The title of the talk will be on:

“Time-Based Circuits – not just the Single Slope!”



Compared to circuits utilizing voltage or current to convey analog signals, time-based circuits offer unique attributes, ranging from simple, area efficient quantization to more complex techniques for time-based processing such as integration, interpolation, and noise shaping. Although time-based circuits are not new, the availability of fast, low-power transistors in advanced process nodes, combined with the challenges of traditional analog design techniques, has renewed interest in time as a signal domain both in academia and in industry. This talk will look at some obvious and more subtle differences between voltage and time-based circuits, and discuss tradeoffs in the context of application requirements. A few advanced state-of-the-art time-based circuits will motivate the audience to consider how time-based circuits can be a useful tool for their own designs.



Matt Straayer studied electrical engineering at University of Michigan and MIT. Currently he is Executive Director, Advanced Research and Development at Maxim, where his group develops architectures and enabling IP for a wide range of products and applications. His experiences include MEMS, RF, frequency generation, data converters, and power, and has found a valuable role for time-based circuits in each of these areas.
