    We describe a method for the online classification of sleep/wake states based on cardiorespiratory signals produced by wearable sensors. The method was conceived in view of its applicability to a wearable sleepiness monitoring device. The method uses a fast Fourier transform as the main feature extraction tool and a feedforward artificial neural network as a classifier. We show that when the metho... View full abstract»

    Improving quality of service in wireless communication links is of vital importance in biomedical applications. Limitations of current technology are evident with a limited number of channels and prone to fading. In this paper, we are exploring impulse radio as a feasible technology for health monitoring and even as novel detached sensors. By exploring advanced deep submicron technology and novel ...

    A high-voltage microfluidic controller designed using DALSA semiconductor's 0.8-mum low-voltage/high-voltage complementary metal-oxide semiconductor/double diffused metal-oxide semiconductor process is presented. The chip's four high-voltage output drivers can switch 300 V, and the dc-dc boost converter can generate up to 68 V using external passive components. This integrated circuit represents a...

    We describe the design, fabrication, and performance of a class of simple handheld fluorometers. The devices consist of a sensor along with an integrated optical filter packaged in a handheld format. The sensor is a differential active pixel sensor with in-pixel correlated double sampling fabricated in a 0.5-mu m 2-poly 3-metal complementary metal-oxide semiconductor process and has a readout nois...

    Tremor, the most common form of movement disorder, is an often debilitating condition that adversely affects an individual's ability to maintain functional independence. Efforts to study, diagnose, and treat such movement disorders are complicated by a dearth of quantitative, precise, or accurate methods for motion data collection and assessment. To address this deficiency, this paper provides two... View full abstract»

    We present the first fully integrated implementation of a patch-clamp measurement system with series-access resistance and parasitic capacitive compensation capability. The system was implemented in a 0.5- mum silicon-on-sapphire process and is capable of recording cell membrane currents up to plusmn20 nA, with an rms noise of 5 pA at 10-kHz bandwidth. The system can compensate for the capacitance... 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.
