Sensor Interface in mixed signal design

MEMS in closed-loop
The validation of a MEMS electronic loop (SENSOR + ASIC) can easily become a nightmare without appropriate means for ASIC specification and validation.
The Dummy MEMS is an electrical emulator of the mechanical sensor behavior in closed loop. The main issue for specifying it is to assess with the right accuracy each of its domains of equivalence with the sensor.

High-Resolution Mixed-Signal design

ASIC with High-End Resolution converter
Embedding a high resolution converter is essential for many applications. But its performances must not be disturbed by the rest of SoC. Noise disturbance channel control, anti ESD protection, timing constraints, voltage, jitter constraints are as many problems which require an accurate control from the SoC integrator. Until the industrial test of the SoC, where the high resolution converter needs high performances input signals and consuming time tests, it is crucial to develop innovative solutions to make the integration safe and profitable.
