Lydia Lee

I am a PhD student in UC Berkeley's Swarm Lab under Kris Pister, where I work on sensor interfaces, image sensors, and image processing hardware.

I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in 2017.

I'm interested sensor systems and networks, computer vision hardware, and low-power computation. My research involves making the sensor systems and computational hardware for autonomous microrobots.

CMOS oscillators to satisfy 802.15.4 and Bluetooth LE PHY specifications without a crystal reference

Computing and Communication Workshop and Conference (CCWC), 2019

We find most physical-layer specifications for RF communication standards IEEE 802.15.4 can be satisfied by relaxation oscillators with the exception of RF carrier accuracy.

Analysis of Silicon Microring Modulators for PAM-4 Optical Transmitters
Lydia Lee

Microring resonators have a linear region of transmission vs. bias voltage, allowing for their use in PAM-N (N > 1) optical transmitters without the need for device-specific calibration.
