    This paper presents a nanopower programmable bandpass filter suitable to process biomedical signals. The filter proves to be very robust to mismatch and process variations even when it has been implemented using MOS transistors biased in the weak inversion region. The paper analyses design issues associated to matching and process variations for the chosen filter topology and constituent transcond... View full abstract»

    Large dc blocking capacitors are a bottleneck in reducing the size and cost of neural implants. We describe an electrode-stimulator chip that removes the need for large dc blocking capacitors in neural implants by achieving precise charge-balanced stimulation with <6 nA of dc error. For cochlear implant patients, this is well below the industry's safety limit of 25 nA. Charge balance is achieve... View full abstract»

    We present in this paper a low-power bioamplifier suitable for massive integration in dense multichannel recording devices. This bioamplifier achieves reduced-size compared to previous designs by means of active low-frequency suppression. An active integrator located in the feedback path of a low-noise amplifier is employed for placing a highpass cutoff frequency within the transfer function. A ve... View full abstract»

    The next generation of implantable high-power neuroprosthetic devices such as visual prostheses and brain computer interfaces are going to be powered by transcutaneous inductive power links formed between a pair of printed spiral coils (PSC) that are batch-fabricated using micromachining technology. Optimizing the power efficiency of the wireless link is imperative to minimize the size of the exte... View full abstract»

    Advances in semiconductor technology have resulted in the creation of miniature medical embedded systems that can wirelessly monitor the vital signs of patients. These lightweight medical systems can aid providers in large disasters who become overwhelmed with the large number of patients, limited resources, and insufficient information. In a mass casualty incident, small embedded medical systems ... View full abstract»

    Sleep monitoring is an important issue and has drawn considerable attention in medicine and healthcare. Given that traditional approaches, such as polysomnography, are usually costly, and often require subjects to stay overnight at clinics, there has been a need for a low-cost system suitable for long-term sleep monitoring. In this paper, we propose a system using low-cost multimodality sensors su... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS) addresses areas at the crossroads of Circuits and Systems and Life Sciences. The main emphasis is on microelectronic issues in a wide range of applications found in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering. The primary goal of the journal is to bridge the unique scientific and technical activities of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society to a wide variety of related areas.

General, theoretical, and application-oriented papers in the biomedical technical area with a Circuits and Systems perspective are encouraged for publication in TBioCAS. To be considered in scope, submissions to TBioCAS must demonstrate synergies between circuits and systems and medicine/biology.
