|Universal Sensor Interface
Circuit: sensor readout and microcontroller
interface all on one chip.
This custom designed ASIC provides a microcontroller interface through a standard sensor bus, on-chip storage of on-line programmable sensor readout control data, and an on-chip temperature sensor. The third generation of this sensor interface chip is currently being designed in collaboration with Prof. Navid Yazdi at Arizona State University.

Microsystem: wireless, battery powered,
This microsystem combines an embedded microcontroller, power management circuitry, and wireless communication hardware with a network of MEMS-based sensors for monitoring a variety of environmental parameters. The system features very low power operation for extended lifetime (up to 10 years on one battery pack), multi-chip module packaging for small size (similar to a deck or cards), and advanced in-module sensor calibration and temperature compensation for highly accurate measurement data. This research is based on previous work done by Prof. Mason at the University of Michigan and Canopus Systems Inc.
