time-based circuits.

Time-Based Circuits - not just the
Single Slope!

Presenter: Matt Straayer, Maxim Integrated Inc.
Abstract: 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.

Applications of Time-Based Circuits in Data Conversion, Filtering, and Control

Presenter: Pavan K. Hanumolu, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Abstract: In the 2nd part of this 2 part series on time based circuits, I will present time based signal representation as an alternative to classical voltage or charge based signal representations. I will then show how this representation enables the implementation of fundamental building blocks such as integrators using mostly digital circuits. Finally, I will present case studies of time based analog filters, analog to digital converters, and DC DC converters to highlight the advantages, opportunities, and drawbacks of the time based approach.
