Dr. Daniel O’ Hare

Sensor interface ICs

Danny is a Principal Investigator in the Microelectronics Circuits research group at Tyndall .His research is in low-noise sensor interface circuits and integrated circuits to enable medical systems.  He has on-going research projects in multi-sensor interfaces using Time to digital converters, Current to digital converters and integrated sensor systems to make surgical procedures safer, quicker and less expensive. His project partners include the Bio-photonics group and the Bio-electronics cluster at Tyndall. He works with Industry partners Analog Devices, Infineon and ST Microelectronics. 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. He joined Motorola Semiconductor 2000 and from 2004 to 2008 he was with Freescale Semiconductor designing 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. Since 2017 he is a Researcher in MCCI based at the Tyndall National Institute. He lectures ‘Advanced Analog IC Design’ to UCC Masters in Electronic Engineering students. He was a co-recipient of the 2021 NEWCAS Best Student Paper. He was the recipient of the 2023 Tyndall Mentor of the Year Award.
