      Reverter Cubarsí, Ferran; Perpiñà Gilabet, Xavier; Barajas Ojeda, Enrique; León, Javier; Vellvehi, Miquel; Jordà, Xavier; Altet Sanahujes, Josep (2016-05-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper analyses how a single metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) can be employed as a thermal sensor to measure on-chip dynamic thermal signals caused by a power-dissipating circuit under test ...
    • Output Power and Gain Monitoring in RF CMOS Class A Power Amplifiers by Thermal Imaging 

      Perpinyà, Xavier; Reverter Cubarsí, Ferran; León, Javier; Barajas Ojeda, Enrique; Vellvehi, Miquel; Jordà, Xavier; Altet Sanahujes, Josep (2018-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The viability of using off-chip single-shot imaging techniques for local thermal testing in integrated Radio Frequency (RF) power amplifiers (PA’s) is analyzed. With this approach, the frequency response of the output power ...
    • Single-MOSFET DC thermal sensor for RF-amplifier central frequency extraction 

      Reverter Cubarsí, Ferran; Perpiñà Gilabet, Xavier; Barajas Ojeda, Enrique; León, Javier; Vellvehi, Miquel; Jordà, Xavier; Altet Sanahujes, Josep (2017-09-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      © 2017 Elsevier B.V. A DC thermal sensor based on a single metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) is proposed to extract high-frequency electrical features of embedded circuits. The MOSFET sensor is ...
    • Thermal phase lag heterodyne infrared imaging for current tracking in radio frequency integrated circuits 

      Perpiñà Gilabet, Xavier; León, Javier; Altet Sanahujes, Josep; Vellvehi, Miquel; Reverter Cubarsí, Ferran; Barajas Ojeda, Enrique; Jordà, Xavier (2017-02-27)
      Article
      Open Access
      With thermal phase lag measurements, current paths are tracked in a Class A radio frequency (RF) power amplifier at 2 GHz. The amplifier is heterodynally driven at 440 MHz and 2 GHz, and its resulting thermal field was ...
