We implemented a light-sensing function on CMOS-based multi-chip stimulator for retinal prosthesis. Using the light-sensing circuitry attached to each stimulation electrode, the flexible multi-chip stimulator is capable of image-based patterned stimulation. We verified the function of the light-controlled decision based on the light intensity measured just beside the stimulation site. We also experimentally demonstrated in vivo retinal stimulation on rabbit's retina with light-controlled decision. The result of the present work is a simplified demonstration for the concept of retinal prosthesis with on-site imaging.
