    • Design and test of resonators using PiezoMUMPS technology 

      Pons Nin, Joan; Gorreta Mariné, Sergio; Domínguez Pumar, Manuel; Blokhina, Elena; O'Connell, D.; Feely, Orla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This paper presents preliminary results obtained with devices fabricated with the new PiezoMUMPS process. Since these devices will be used as resonators in applications based on Pulsed Digital Oscillators, we analyze, both ...
    • Nonlinear dynamics and bifurcation behavior of a 2-DOF spring resonator with end stopper for energy harvesting 

      El Aroudi, Abdelali; Blokhina, Elena; O'Connell, D.; Fu, B.; Frizzell, R.; Feely, Orla; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José (EDP Sciences, 2014)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In this paper, the model of a two-degree-of-freedom (2-DOF) spring resonator with end stopper for an energy harvesting application is presented. Then we characterize its nonlinear dynamical behavior by numerical simulations ...

    • Pulsed digital oscillators for electrostatic MEMS 

      Gorreta Mariné, Sergio; Ruiz Fernández, Daniel; Blokhina, Elena; Pons Nin, Joan; Jiménez Serres, Vicente; O'Connell, D.; Feely, Orla; Madrenas Boadas, Jordi; Domínguez Pumar, Manuel (2012)

      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This paper introduces a new actuation scheme for implementing Pulsed Digital Oscillators (PDOs) for electrostatic MEMS resonators. In this scheme, the capacitance of the device is biased with a voltage and it is periodically ...
    • Understanding complexity in multiphysics systems-on-a-chip: modern approaches for design 

      Blokhina, Elena; O'Connell, D.; Andrade Miceli, Dennis; Gorreta Mariné, Sergio; Pons Nin, Joan; Domínguez Pumar, Manuel; Feely, Orla; Galayko, Dimitri (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The aim of this paper is to formalise the term “complexity” in the context of modern microelectronics, propose the definitions of key terms and discuss a case study. Our aim is to show that the term “complex system” is ...
