CMOS-based gas sensor: SoC approach
MetadataShow full item record
Summary form only given. The design of CMOS-based SAW gas sensor with a system on chip (SoC) approach is presented in this paper. The SAW sensor devices typically run at RF, requiring most design to have complex signal conditioning circuitry. Our approach attempts to simplify the design while operating at 354 MHz. An algorithm has been developed to get the optimized solution for the SAW sensor's design parameters. In the simulations the tungsten trioxide (WO3) film is used as a sensing element to detect hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The signal processing circuitry is designed using TSMC 0.35mum technology. It could detect the input which is in the form of frequency ranging from 300 MHz to 400 MHz. Simulation data show that this design has 30% reduced power and 10 time lesser die size, compare to two existing works. The CMOS SAW gas sensor is designed using the Mentor Graphics design tools based on TSMC 0.35 mum technology. It shows the layout of the entire system. Numerous simulations have been performed to get the optimized design. The results obtained based on different number of IDT finger pairs and overlap length are shown. Finally, the final output (in voltage) from the signal conditioning circuitry is presented
