Analog-Digital Converter: An introduction
In his new book "Analog-Digital Converters for Industrial Applications Including an Introduction to Digital-Analog Converters", Frank Ohnhaeuser offers an introduction into the topic of analog-digital-converters to the interested reader. Analog-digital converters are the central element of data processing and influence in particular the performance and the resolution of a system or a product. The knowledge of the specific advantages and disadvantages of different converter architectures is for system development engineers important.
After a detailed introduction, Frank Ohnhaeuser addresses valuable topics of state-of-the-art designs as well as research approaches of converters based on successive approximation and delta-sigma architectures for IC- design engineers. Interested readers and students get a comprehensible introduction into the topic of converters as well as into the professional environment through the book "Analog-Digital Converters for Industrial Applications Including an Introduction to Digital-Analog Converters".

eesy-ic sponsers the EuMIC Young Engineers Prize on EuMW 2013
eesy-ic sponsors the eighth EuMIC Young Engineer Prize 2013 with € 2,000 at the European Microwave Week 2013 in Nuremberg. The winner is Shuai Yuan (TU Stuttgart) for his paper "A SiGe:C BiCMOS 140 GHz Wideband Frequency Multiplier-by-8 with Differential Output."
With this prize eesy-ic aims to promote and encourage young engineers, and to actively communicate with young researchers and discover new talent.
Our management team regularly lectures at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg on
- Analog-Digital and Digital-Analog-Converters
- Analog IC Signal Conditioning
Our team is in constant contact with young engineers and this ensures we are able to produce the best customer solutions and most innovative products on the market.
The IEEE ISCDG Best Student Paper Award goes to an eesy-ic employee
Our colleague, Mr Matthias Maser received the Best Student Paper Award for his paper entitled "An Integrated SiGe Bipolar VCO with Linearized Tuning Behavior and Ultra-Wide Tuning Range for UWB FMCW Local Positioning Systems" at the International Semiconductor Conference ISCDG in Dresden. We are very pleased about this and sincerely congratulate him on his award.
eesy-ic exhibits at IEEE International Semiconductor Conference Dresden-Grenoble
eesy-ic participated in the IEEE International Semiconductor Conference (ISCDG) in Dresden – one of the two major European sites for semiconductor research, development, and production.
Leading players and experts came together to exchange their knowledge and experience for this two day conference. The objective of the ISCDG is to enhance the visibility of international excellence of the European players in micro- and nano-electronics. eesy-ic’s team was also able to present a selection of their new ideas to the public at the conference.
Furthermore, eesy-ic’s colleague Matthias Maser received the Best Student Paper Award for his paper entitled "An Integrated SiGe Bipolar VCO with Linearized Tuning Behavior and Ultra-Wide Tuning Range for UWB FMCW Local Positioning Systems."
Germany's eesy-ic announces new CTO
Georg Schmidt, CEO and CVO of eesy-ic, announced that he has transferred the technical management of eesy-ic to Dr. Frank Ohnhäuser, current CTO and CEO.
“Ohnhäuser is the ideal fit for the position due to his wide experience in the development of integrated circuits,” Schmidt says. Besides Ohnhäuser's long list of patents and applications, he previously opened a design center for Burr-Brown/Texas Instruments in 1999 and successfully led it until beginning at eesy-ic.
Furthermore, Ohnhäuser is teaching analog IC design at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. This will allow close cooperation between eesy-ic and the university to ensure dynamic growth. "I'm looking forward to a successful future," Schmidt said.
eesy-ic opens new design center in Germany
eesy-ic has opened a new design center in Nuremberg, Germany. eesy-ic specializes in customized integrated circuit (ICs) development as well as application specific ICs with analog focus. The development includes the complete product development flow starting from product definition, IC-design, IC-layout, characterization, and production test. Foundries are used for the production. Special knowhow is available for signal conditioning and data conversion up to 1MSPS conversion rate with high resolution. Further expertize is available in RF design.
eesy-ic also offers consulting for IC- and Hardware developments. The new location should increase the cooperation with the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg to ensure dynamic growth.
