  • In Vitro Long-Term Performance Evaluation and Improvement in the Response Time of CMOS-Based Implantable Glucose Sensors

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):37 - 48
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1262 KB)

    This article confirmed that the sensor retains its measurement capability for more than 150 days in a saline solution. In addition, an optimization of the sensor structure for obtaining an improved response time was carried out. A response time as short as that of the conventional self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) technology was obtained with the optimized sensor structure. View full abstract»

  • Pulse-Width-Modulating Biosignal ADC for Rapid ASIC Design and IP Core Reuse

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):49 - 60
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2440 KB)

    This paper presents an integrated analog-to-digital converter (ADC) based on pulse-width modulation (PWM) employing a clocked comparator. The converter parameter resolution, sample rate, input range, and supply voltage are adjustable and make the design useful for implantable or wearable multiple biopotential recording (ExG).

  • A Multichannel Power-Supply-Modulated Microstimulator With Energy Recycling

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):61 - 73
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2102 KB)

    This paper presents an energy recycling power-supply-modulated multichannel microstimulator with energy recycling. To improve the stimulation efficiency, the supply of the current driver is modulated according to the instantaneous electrode voltage. Multichannel stimulation together with energy recycling is achieved through decoupling the electrode array from the power supply. A digital pulse-skip... View full abstract»

    This tutorial gives an introduction to novices in CPS and particularly highlights the basics of control theory with respect to automotive applications. The authors furthermore describe the “semantic gap” between control models and their implementation and conclude that a new CPS-oriented design approach is required. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (113 KB)

    A confluence of application requirements and physics leads us to types of chips to design. A new generation of ultralow-power (ULP) chips will build upon research over the past several decades but these techniques, once considered niche, will rise to the top of the agenda for many organizations. Microprocessors pay attention to power consumption for two reasons: thermal design power (TDP) and over... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Design & Test offers original works describing the models, methods and tools used to design and test microelectronic systems from devices and circuits to complete systems-on-chip and embedded software. The magazine focuses on current and near-future practice, and includes tutorials, how-to articles, and real-world case studies. The magazine seeks to bring to its readers not only important technology advances but also technology leaders, their perspectives through its columns, interviews and roundtable discussions. Topics include semiconductor IC design, semiconductor intellectual property blocks, design, verification and test technology, design for manufacturing and yield, embedded software and systems, low-power and energy efficient design, electronic design automation tools, practical technology, and standards.  

It was published as IEEE Design & Test of Computers between 1984 and 2012.
