10 bit 100MSps pipeline ADC for video and SDR

The customer's ASIC was based on the standard TSMC 0.13 µm CMOS.  AnSem was asked to design the dedicated pipelined 10bit @ 100MSps ADC core because we had consistently exceeded the customer's expectations in previous projects.  To optimize area and power AnSem used a 1.2V power supply and carefully...

MEMS driver ASIC for a novel contact lens sensor

AnSem developed an ASIC for Sensimed to mount directly within the contact lens.  The ASIC digitizes the MEMS sensor reading and transmits the measurements back to the recorder via the same RF link used to power the device using load modulation techniques. By choosing ON Semiconductor's I3T50 0.35 µm...

High Voltage MEMS array

AnSem designed an ASIC containing all the supporting circuitry for the MEMS. On this ASIC, the MEMS array is postprocessed after regular CMOS silicon processing. Each MEMS is programmed by a control voltage with a range between -15V and +15V relative to the silicon substrate. The voltage at each MEMS is controlled by...
