M.Sc. Ahmed Abdelaal

Ahmed Abdelaal received the B.​Sc degree in Electronics Engineering from the German University in Cairo (GUC), Egypt, 2016. Afterwards, he received the M.Sc degree in 2018 from Ulm University, Germany, where he is currently working towards his PhD under the supervision of Professor Dr.-Ing. Maurits Ortmanns. His research interest is high-speed continuous-time sigma-delta modulators.

Ultra-low Power, Wide Bandwidth Continuous-time Delta Sigma Analog to Digital Converter Design

A. Abdelaal, M. Pietzko: Continuous-time delta sigma modulators (CTDSMs) have recently become the key device for broadband wireless and wireline communication.  Due to their built in anti-aliasing filter and the ability to have relaxed sampling requirements the CTDS modulators are preferred over their discrete time counterparts ...
