    An innovative parylene-based high-density chip-level integrated interconnect (CL-I2) packaging system for retinal implants id discussed. The implications of this CL-I2 technology for retinal prosthesis packaging effort are far-reaching. This technology obviates the need for a technician to create electrical and mechanical connections one by one. Instead, the technology is lim... View full abstract»

    A prosthetic device that functions in a biomimetic manner to replace information transmission between cortical brain regions is considered. In such a prosthesis, damaged CNS neurons is replaced with a biomimetic system comprised of silicon neurons. The replacement silicon neurons would have functional properties specific to those of the damaged neurons and would both receive as inputs and send as ... View full abstract»

    A retinal prosthesis capable of restoring face recognition, reading, and mobility to blind patients is within the capability of microsystems technology. Electrode arrays can be made dense enough to be able to place thousands of pixels into the macula. Electrode materials can supply safe and effective stimulus current. This review examines some prior work in electrical stimulation of the retina and... View full abstract»

    The functional reanimation of paralyzed limbs has been a longstanding goal of neural prosthetic research, but clinically successful applications have been elusive. Natural voluntary limb movement requires four major elements: actuators (i.e., motor units), sensors (i.e., somatosensory afferents), commands (i.e., cerebral cortical activity), and control (i.e., integration of the previous three elem...

    Silicon-based microsystems are being developed to interface with the central nervous system (CNS) at the cellular level. Dense three-dimensional (3-D) microelectrode arrays with as many as several hundred sites permit acute and semichronic single-unit recording and stimulation, while on-chip circuitry for site selection, amplification, and multiplexing reduces noise and limits the number of output...

    In this article, design examples will be presented for a biomimetic microelectronic system for a retinal prosthesis that electrically stimulates the retinal neurons. The system replaces the functionality of vision in blind patients affected by retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration. The components and signal processing needed for a cortical prosthesis are described. Integration ... View full abstract»

    Implantable devices are well on the way to becoming small, dedicated, and highly complex embedded systems. As such, they are plagued by the same thermal management problems that afflict the computer industry: increased functionality causes increased heat generation. Herein, the effects of various parameters on the temperature increase in the human body tissue are considered, with a focus on a spec... View full abstract»
