EE4555 Active implantable biomedical microsystems
This course provides a background on the application of AIBMs, an introduction to the latest techniques used and examples of existing medical devices. It can be used as a guide to the design of AIBMs and also as a reference for existing medical devices. The course is aimed at MSc students in Electrical Engineering (track Microelectronics) and in Biomedical Engineering (specialization Biomedical Electronics) who have an interest in the research and design of AIBMs.
The following topics are treated:
- Electrodes, optodes, sensors and actuators
- Electrode characterization and modeling
- Electronic system design
- Stimulation electronics
- Front-end electronics (signal conditioning, amplifiers, filters, ADCs, etc.)
- DACs and wireless data transfer
- Energy harvesting and power delivery
- Applications: cochlear implants and cardiac pacemakers
- Digital design
- Biocompatibility, materials and fabrication considerations
- Assembly, system integration and packaging
- Application: spinal cord stimulator
- Reliability and security
- Clinical and regulatory considerations
