Design of a High Temperature GaN-Based Variable Gain Amplifier for Downhole Communications
(Virginia Tech, 2017-02-07)
The decline of easily accessible reserves pushes the oil and gas industry to explore deeper wells, where the ambient temperature often exceeds 210 °C. The need for high temperature operation, combined with the need for ...
Design of a High Temperature GaN-Based VCO for Downhole Communications
(Virginia Tech, 2017-02-20)
Decreasing reserves of natural resources drives the oil and gas industry to drill deeper and deeper to reach unexploited wells. Coupled with the demand for substantial real-time data transmission, the need for high speed ...
A Study on Energy Harvesters for Physical Unclonable Functions and Random Number Generation
(Virginia Tech, 2017-08-04)
As the broad implementation and use of wireless sensor nodes in Internet of Things (IOT) devices increase over the years, securing personal data becomes a growing issue. Physical unclonable functions (PUFs) and random ...
