A power and area efficient sensor interface consumes 6.4 mW from 1.2 V while occupying 5 mm × 5 mm in 0.13 μm CMOS. The interface offers simultaneous access to 96 channels of broadband neural data acquired from cortical microelectrodes as part of a head-mounted wireless recording system, enabling basic neuroscience as well as neuroprosthetics research. Signals are conditioned with a front-end achieving 2.2 μVrms input-referred noise in a 10 kHz bandwidth before conversion at 31.25 kSa/s by 10-bit SAR ADCs with 60.3 dB SNDR and 42 fJ/conv-step. Switched-capacitor filtering provides a well-controlled frequency response and utilizes windowed integrator sampling to mitigate noise aliasing, enhancing noise/power efficiency.
