Dr. Daniel O’ Hare

Sensor interface ICs

In May 2017 Danny joined MCCI as a senior researcher based in Tyndall National Institute. Danny’s research interests are low noise, low area and low voltage analogue interface circuits and ADCs. These interests are applied in Sensor interface ICs with photonics interfaces and precision current sensing strong interests. He lectures ‘Advanced Analogue IC Design’ to UCC masters in Electronic Engineering students and is a UCC school of Engineering Fellow. Prior to MCCI he worked in industry for 12 years. From 2000 to 2008 he was with Motorola/ Freescale Semiconductor designing filters, ADCs and DACs for Cellular transceivers. From 2008 to 2012 he was Analogue Design lead with M4S NV a spinout of IMEC and from 2013 to 2017 he was an ADC researcher in the Circuits and Systems group at the University of Limerick. Current research: Danny’s present research is in low-noise sensor interface circuits for sensor fusion and Bio-medical applications. He supervise several PhD research projects investigating precision current interfaces and magnetic field sensors. He has several on-going projects with the Biophotonics group at Tyndall National Institute. Education: Danny received the BE degree in Electronic Engineering from University College Dublin in 2000 and completed his PhD at the University of Limerick in 2017. His PhD title was “Design of Continuous Time input pipeline ADCs for deep sub-micron technologies”.
