C3.3 - Investigation of High-Voltage-CMOS-Technology for the Design of Dynamically Reconfigurable Sensor Electronics

Martin Hetterich & Andreas Koenig
The surging advance in microelectronics, predicted and driven by Moore's law, renders ever diminishing transistor sizes, increasing packaging densities and unprecedented complexity of circuits and systems. This is particularly good news for digital designs, however, for analog and mixed-signal sensor electronics, which comprise a small yet essential fraction of a large variety of embedded and integrated systems in industrial application systems, this is less fortunate. In particular, the on-going reduction of supply voltages is detrimental...
