Carroll C Speir, Eric Otte, Jeffrey Paul Bray: Efficient calibration of errors in multi-stage analog-to-digital converter. Analog Devices, Patent Capital Group, November 22, 2016: US09503116 (4 worldwide citation)

Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) can have errors which can affect their performance. To improve the performance, many techniques have been used to compensate or correct for the errors. When the ADCs are being implemented with sub-micron technology, ADCs can be readily and easily equipped with an ...

Eric Otte: Data handoff between randomized clock domain to fixed clock domain. ANALOG DEVICES, Patent Capital Group, August 21, 2018: US10057048

A time-interleaved analog-to-digital converter (ADC) having M ADCs can increase the sampling speed several times compared to the sampling speed of just one ADC. Some time-interleaved ADCs randomize the order of the M ADCs sampling the analog input signal to improve dynamic performance. Randomization ...

Eric Otte: Measuring and correcting non-idealities of a system. ANALOG DEVICES, Patent Capital Group, April 17, 2018: US09945901

Many systems implement calibration schemes to measure and correct for the non-idealities. Such systems can be complex, which makes them impractical to implement since the cost can potentially outweigh the benefits of the calibration scheme. To implement efficient and effective calibration, non-ideal ...

Timothy Smith, Eric Otte: Hydrokinetic turbine structure and system. March 10, 2011: US20110058929-A1

A hydrokinetic turbine system, including a plurality of hydrokinetic turbines is installed on a bed of a body of water. Each turbine has a shroud with a forward entrance portion and rear exit portion. The shroud includes a propeller disposed in a middle portion thereof. An inner surface of the shrou ...
