PhD Thesis Defense
In order to change the world, technological advancements must be made affordable and available for the general public to use. In other words, we must be able to scale our inventions effectively. Silicon integrated circuits are crucial components in scaling electronic systems because they are mass producible and offer a phenomenal cost-to-complexity ratio. This thesis summarizes my work on highly scalable sensor and array systems. It presents three high precision systems that demonstrate how the use of highly functional radio-frequency integrated circuits enables previously unfeasible architectures.
