Abstract :

Implantable Medical Devices (IMDs), especially biosensors research is still in its early stages and thus represents an enormous opportunity for which Ultra-Low-Power System on Chip (SoC) and VLSI/MEMS technologies can enable the development of novel devices and therapies. Broadly, biomedical implants encompass a range of medical solutions for various bodily disorders and include cardiovascular implantable devices such as defibrillators, pacemakers; Neural devices like Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) and prostheses for Central Nervous System (CNS), Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), cochlear and retinal applications; Biosensors include miniaturized glucose sensor, cholesterol sensors, saliva sensors etc. are picking up in the research arena. Unlike other commercial devices however, developing microsystems for these applications requires critical analysis in terms of specifications, technologies and design techniques because of the device's safety and efficacy. The trade-off between performance and power consumption is a challenging act in the design of these devices. This presentation aims to evaluate possible applications, to derive the requirements that future circuits integrating bio-sensors, ultra-low power processors, must meet and to recognize, as far as possible, the challenges which have to be faced.
