A light microscopical, histochemical and electron microscopical investigation of the frog neuromuscular junction has been performed on muscles from animals in different functional states of activity. The combined staining of axon terminals and cholinesterase (ChE) allows a precise description of the nerve terminal arborization and its synaptic contacts.(More)
A 2.5 MB/s, 400 MHz RF transceiver was design for implantable biomedical micro-stimulators in a 0.18 mum CMOS process. It consists of a transmitter with an output power of -4.5 dBm and a receiver that can detect input signal at < -95 dBm. When one time slot of 6us in a -llrns data frame is used, the transceiver has an effective bit rate of 1.36 kB/s, and(More)
The IC designs of an implantable functional electrical stimulation (FES) battery-powered micro-stimulator are presented in this paper. The battery is recharged by receiving power magnetically through a coil under supervision of a power management unit. To limit the heat generation on the stimulator when a large magnetic field is present, an on-chip(More)
The wireless electronic nervous system interface known as the functional electrical stimulation-battery powered bion system is being developed at the Alfred Mann Foundation. It contains a real-time propagated wave micro-powered multichannel communication system. This system is designed to send bi-directional messages between an external master controller(More)
Technical ceramics like A&.03, B&, Si3N4, Sic, ZrOz, and WC exhibit good properties for hightemperature applications. They are used, for instance, as protective coatings for metallic components under combined thermal and mechanical load in order to reduce the effective temperature of the protected component, as anticorrosive protections in energy converting(More)
