    • A 1.2-V current-mode RMS-to-DC converter based on a novel two-quadrant electronically simulated MOS translinear loop 

      Martincorena Arraiza, Maite; Cruz Blas, Carlos Aristóteles de la Upna; Algueta-Miguel, Jose M. Upna; López Martín, Antonio Upna (IEEE, 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A novel current-mode CMOS RMS-to-DC converter using translinear techniques is introduced. It is based on a squarer/divider cell that is implemented using an electronically simulated loop with a novel biasing scheme that ...
    • CMOS low-voltage indirect current feedback instrumentation amplifiers with improved performance 

      Carrillo, Juan M.; Domínguez, Miguel A.; Pérez Aloe, Raquel; Duque Carrillo, J. Francisco; Cruz Blas, Carlos Aristóteles de la Upna (IEEE, 2020)   Contribución a congreso / Biltzarrerako ekarpena  OpenAccess
      Indirect current feedback (ICF) is a very common operation principle used in the design of CMOS instrumentation amplifiers (IA). The input and output transconductors required in an ICF IA usually consist on resistive-degenerated ...
    • Design of low-cost smart accelerometers 

      Carlosena García, Alfonso Upna; López Martín, Antonio Upna; Massarotto, Marco Upna; Cruz Blas, Carlos Aristóteles de la Upna; Lecumberri Villamediana, Pablo Upna; Gómez Fernández, Marisol Upna; Pintor Borobia, Jesús María Upna; Gárriz Sanz, Sergio Upna (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2005)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The goal of this project is to design a low-cost smart accelerometer, making use of a piezoelectric element as basic sensing material, and adding a mixed-mode conditioning circuit.
    • Low power CMOS chopper preamplifier based on source-degeneration transconductors 

      Cinco Izquierdo, O. J.; Sanz Pascual, M. T.; Cruz Blas, Carlos Aristóteles de la Upna; Calvo López, B. (IEEE, 2020)   Contribución a congreso / Biltzarrerako ekarpena
      This paper describes the design of a low-power, low-noise flicker CMOS chopper preamplifier for sensor signal conditioning. The core amplifier and the Gm-C output low pass filter of the proposed fully differential preamplifier ...
    • Low-power ultrasonic front-end for cargo container monitoring 

      Algueta-Miguel, Jose M. Upna; García Oya, José Ramón; López Martín, Antonio Upna; Cruz Blas, Carlos Aristóteles de la Upna; Muñoz Chavero, Fernando; Hidalgo Fort, Eduardo (IEEE, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      A low-power ultrasonic communication system conceived for cargo container monitoring is presented. Two piezoelectric transducers operating at 40 kHz are used for generating and acquiring an ultrasonic signal through the ...
