Electronics for Healthcare and Neuroscience

Driven by the consumer electronics industry, silicon has proven to be the substrate that can be used to make ever powerful and cheaper processors. However, in contrast to this conventional Moor’s law, there exists a More-than-Moore axis in semiconductor industry roadmap. This is where the versatility of analog circuits and silicon sensors/actuators come into picture. This axis is not limited by the bottlenecks of Moor’s law and has proven to be extremely important in bringing richness and diversification in modern silicon circuits and systems. Advances in medical-electronics and neuro-electronics fall in this category. Neuromorphic electronics is another of the more ambitious examples of silicon electronics that can be categorized in this domain.

I will talk about all these three topics in relation to my own work. I will discuss how the physics of silicon is used to emulate and understand the nervous system I will then talk about ambulatory healthcare devices, such as EEG and ECG systems. Finally I will present the advances in neural recording circuits developed by our group in the recent past.  These systems have already proven to be instrumental in advancing the technological limitations of neurophysiology and should eventually merge the ‘knowledge gap’ between electronics and neuroscience.
