Dan Bernard Kasha has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10840863
    Abstract: A technique for receiving a DC or low frequency input signal using a chopper-stabilized amplifier includes chopping an input signal using a chopper clock signal to generate a chopped input signal. The input signal has a first voltage range and the chopper clock signal has a second voltage range. The chopper clock signal has peak-to-peak voltage over a period of the chopper clock signal. The peak-to-peak voltage is less than the first voltage range and is less than the second voltage range. A frequency of the input signal is at least an order of magnitude less than a frequency of the chopper clock signal. The second voltage range may be greater than or equal to the first voltage range. The technique may include generating a bias signal based on a voltage reference signal and an output signal having the first voltage range.
