Henry Barrow received his B.S degree in electrical engineering from the University of Arizona in Tucson. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests include RF MEMS Resonators and Filters.
Fully-Integrated Micromechanical Clock Oscillator [BPN534]
This project aims to develop a fully integrated micromechanical clock oscillator which outperforms current quartz-based clock oscillators in terms of both size and cost. A 32-kHz micromechanical resonator with a temperature coefficient better than 10 ppm over the commercial temperature range will act as the oscillator's reference. In addition, this oscillator will utilize an integrated fabrication process above modern transistor circuits in order to minimize device footprint and production expense.
