A Silicon Germanium Cmos Linear Voltage Regulator For Wireless Agricultural Applications, Aminta Naidili Castillo Robles May 2019

A Silicon Germanium Cmos Linear Voltage Regulator For Wireless Agricultural Applications, Aminta Naidili Castillo Robles

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis presents the design, simulation and test results of a silicon germanium (SiGe) complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) linear regulator. The objective of the circuit is to power other analog devices regardless of the load current and input voltage changes. The application of this regulator is to be part of a project developing a miniaturized semiconductor platform that can be inserted into stems of crops in order to measure data inside the plant and then send it wirelessly to the user. The linear regulator was designed on a BiCMOS SiGe 0.13┬Ám which is a GlobalFoundries process. It has been tested ...


Probabilistic Insertion, Deletion And Substitution Error Correction Using Markov Inference In Next Generation Sequencing Reads, Vahid Noroozi Jan 2016

Probabilistic Insertion, Deletion And Substitution Error Correction Using Markov Inference In Next Generation Sequencing Reads, Vahid Noroozi

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Error correction of noisy reads obtained from high-throughput DNA sequencers is an important problem since read quality significantly affects downstream analyses such as detection of genetic variation and the complexity and success of sequence assembly. Most of the current error correction algorithms are only capable of recovering substitution errors. In this work, Pindel, an algorithm that simultaneously corrects insertion, deletion and substitution errors in reads from next generation DNA sequencing platforms is presented. Pindel corrects insertion, deletion and substitution errors by modelling the sequencer output as emissions of an appropriately defined Hidden Markov Model (HMM). Reads are corrected to the ...
