    This paper addresses the design considerations of a novel earpiece photoplethymograph (PPG) sensor and its in-situ evaluation results. The device is encapsulated with multiple LEDs and photodiodes based on a reflective PPG design. A compact and low power circuitry was developed for signal control and conditioning. PPG signals with an averaged ac/dc ratio of 0.001-0.01 and 10% relative stren... View full abstract»

    This paper describes two methods for noncontact monitoring of heart and lung activity, namely magnetic bioimpedance monitoring and capacitive electrocardiogram (ECG) recording. In principle, both methods bear the potential for mobile application in a personal healthcare scenario. To illustrate their performance, prototypes for both methods have been developed and first results are presented. Final... View full abstract»

    A hybrid microfluidic/IC capacitive sensor is presented in this paper for highly integrated lab-on-chips (LoCs). We put forward the design and implementation of a charge based capacitive sensor array in 0.18-mum CMOS process. This sensor chip is incorporated with a microfluidic channel using direct-write microfluidic fabrication process (DWFP). The design, construction and experimental resu... View full abstract»

    We present a vision sensor chip designed to detect multiple transient objects - objects that either move or change in light intensity - and output their locations using address-event representation. The sensor uses a novel onset detector to detect transient objects and a dynamically-wired winner-takes-all circuit to group pixels and select the brightest pixel in each object. This paper describes t... View full abstract»
