Research Interests

  • Low-noise, high speed oscillators
  • high-precision time-to-digital converters (TDC)
  • All-digital phase-locked loops (ADPLL) for high frequencies (> 50 GHz)
  • Electronic Design Automation with a focus on layout generation

Vita
Patrick Kurth (nee Schulz) received the B.Sc. and the M.Sc. of electrical engineering in 2015 and 2017, respectively, from the Technische Universität Berlin.
During his studies he worked for nine months at the Mikroelektronik Anwendungszentrum im Land Brandenburg (MAZBr) as circuit and layout designer. In his master thesis, he studied phase noise properties of different oscillator topologies and developed an low-noise oscillator based on active inductors.
He joined the chair of mixed-signal circuit design in november 2017.
