MSc thesis project proposal

Nanopower Resistor-Based Temperature Sensors (imec)

  • Resistor-based temperature sensors are the most energy-efficient class of CMOS temperature sensors [1]. For use in implantable medical devices, or in IoT devices, their power dissipation must be reduced. The aim of this project is to design and implement a sub-uW resistor-based temperature sensor in a 180nm CMOS process.
