Saturday, 23 January, 2016

This year, at the leading integrated circuit conference ISSCC in San Francisco, California (1-4 February 2016), IRIS research unit will be there with two papers:

N. Massari, L. Gasparini, A. Tomasi, A. Meneghetti, H. Xu, D. Perenzoni, G. Morgari, D. Stoppa, "A 16×16 pixels SPAD-based 128-Mb/s Quantum Random Number Generator with -74dB Light Rejection Ratio and -6.7ppm/°C Bias Sensitivity on Temperature"
M. Perenzoni, D. Perenzoni, D. Stoppa, "A 64×64-Pixel Digital Silicon Photomultiplier Direct ToF Sensor with 100MPhotons/s/pixel Background Rejection and Imaging/Altimeter Mode with 0.14% Precision up to 6km for Spacecraft Navigation and Landing"

The first paper is one of the outcomes of the SiQuro project, aiming at the development of a QRNG based on photon statistics. It is the result of a collaboration with the University of Trento. It will be presented at the "Innovations in Circuits and Systems Enabled by Novel Technologies" session.

The second paper describes the chip developed in the ESA project MILA, aiming at realizing a miniaturized lidar using SPAD technology for space applications. It will be presented at the "Image Sensors" session. This paper will also be paired with a prototype at the demonstration session, showcasing a compact 3D camera using direct time-of-flight.

Of course, we look forward to see you in San Francisco!
