New CMOS potentiostat as ASIC for several electrochemical microsensors construction

Lukas Fujcik, Roman Prokop, Jan Prasek, Jaromir Hubalek, Radimir Vrba

The purpose of this paper is to design and create a potentiostat that can be integrated and encapsulated within a microelectrode as a low‐cost electrochemical sensor…

The role of bonding duration in wire bond formation: a study of footprints of thermosonic gold wire on aluminium pad

Hui Xu, Changqing Liu, Vadim V. Silberschmidt, Zhong Chen, Jun Wei

Optimization of the process parameters remains a challenging task in thermosonic wire bonding due to relatively poor understanding of the bonding mechanism. The purpose of…

Effects of the polarity of high‐electric field stressing on power VDMOSFETs parameters

R. El Bitar, G. Salloum, B. Nsouli

The purpose of this paper is to study the effects of positive and negative bias stressing on switching performance of power VDMOSFETs used in communication systems.


Aluminium‐silicon alloy and its composites reinforces by silicon carbide particles

Montasser S. Tahat

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of SiC addition up to 60 percent SiC on the mechanical properties and thermal expansion of Al‐7vol.% Si/SiC composites.

Design and analysis of a novel fine pitch and highly stretchable interconnect

Yung‐Yu Hsu, Mario Gonzalez, Frederick Bossuyt, Fabrice Axisa, Jan Vanfleteren, Bart Vandevelde, Ingrid de Wolf

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate electromechanical properties of a new stretchable interconnect design for “fine pitch” applications in stretchable electronics.

Design of SIPC‐based complementary LC‐QVCO in 0.18‐μm CMOS technology for WiMAX application

Harikrishnan Ramiah, Tun Zainal Azni Zulkifli, Noramalia Sapiee

The purpose of this paper is to design and realize a low‐phase noise, high‐output power, and high‐tuning range, fully integrated source injection parallel coupled…

High photoluminescence of silicon nanostructures synthesized by laser‐induced etching

Asmiet Ramizy, Khalid Omar, Z. Hassan

The purpose of this paper is to synthesize Si (porous silicon (PS)) by laser‐induced etching (LIE) technique. The LIE process has the added advantage of a controlling size…
