Multi-Channel Optical Digitizer for Earth Sciences

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The goal was to produce an ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) incorporating a multi-channel optical digitizer for use in image sensor instruments.

The main objective was to design and manufacture a multi-channel high resolution analog-digital converter for digitizing a CCD image signal. The tasks included schematic capture, simulation, layout and verification leading to a GDSII foundry ready database. The chip was sent for manufacture in August 2012 and silicon was received in October 2012.
