Taher Kourany joined Scenario Design Services, Cairo, Egypt as a Senior IC Design Consultant in 2016. He received B.Sc Degree in electronics and communications engineering from Ain-Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 2012. He received M.S. degree in electronics from the American University, Cairo, Egypt, in 2015. Until October 2015 he was a Research Assistant with the Center of Nanoelectonics and Devices Research Labs at Zewail City for Science and Technology. Mr. Kourany has published papers in the field of time complexity reduction algorithms of floorplan representations, area and wirelength minimization, Pareto-front multi-objective optimization algorithms of highly chaotic systems. His current research interests include high linearity Power Amplifiers, time complexity reduction algorithms, data structures, parameters estimation of highly chaotic systems, and the synthesis of analog IC design and layout.

The XBG_1V23LC_V01 is an embedded ultra-low power bandgap reference block which operates with 3.3V power supply. In Standby Mode (PDn = 'L') the power consumption is minimal, VBG will be pulled to ground level. The bandgap IP will be activated with the rising edge of signal PDn (PDn = 'H') and generates an output voltage of 1.23V on pin VBG. The output voltage can be trimmed via signals TR_BG[3:0] in 16 steps. The default combination is 4'b0000.
