M.Sc. Yanquan Luo

Yanquan Luo received her B.Sc. degree in Microelectronics from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 2013; And M.Sc. degree in Microelectronics from Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands, in 2015.

Currently, she works towards the PhD. Degree under the supervision of Professor Dr.-Ing. Maurits Ortmanns, at the University of Ulm.  Her research topic is high-performance mixed-signal CMOS IC design.


High resolution SAR ADC employing Sigma Delta DACs

Y. Luo: ADCs are essential building blocks for almost all electronic systems, they represent the key element that allows the digital representation of any electrical signal located in the analog domain, and hence these by-nature analog signals could be processed by the latest sophisticated digital processing units only after well A/D conversion in the ADCs ...
