Bioelectronics and biomedical microelectronics

EE-519

Lecturer(s) :

Schmid Alexandre

Language:

English

Summary

The course covers the fundaments of bioelectronics and integrated microelectronics for biomedical and implantable systems. Issues and trade-offs at the circuit and systems levels of invasive microelectronic systems as well as their eluding designs, methods and classical implementations are discussed

Content

Bioelectricity and bio-signals biopotentials, definition of selected bio-signals

Electrodes types of electrodes and integrated electrodes, characteristics and impact on the recording/driving circuits,neuron-semiconductor interface

Bio-signal recording low-noise amplifiers, architectures analysis, presentation of main design issues, low-powerlow-noise design techniques

Multichannel recording massively parallel recording techniques, examples of the cortical implants,compressed-sensing techniques

Electrical stimulation integrated circuits for electrical stimulation of tissues, specific issues related to operating voltage,charge balancing

In-vitro systems techniques for integrated recording in-vitro, stimulation

Neuromorphic integrated electronics usage of microelectronics to mimic neurons or higher-level functions,fundaments of microelectronic bio-inspired systems and applications in processing and vision

Application examples case studies of classical implanted systems, as well as prospective systems, including cochlearimplants, sight restoring retina implants, deep-brain stimulation systems, cortical recording systems (invasive), epilepsymanagement systems, bio-pills, multimodal systems

Keywords

Bio-electronics, bio-medical electronics, implantable microelectronic
