This paper presents a hand-held microsystem based on new fully integrated magnetoresistive biochips for biomolecular recognition (DNA hybridisation, antibody antigen interaction, etc.). These biochips use magnetic field arraying of magnetically tagged biomolecules and high sensitivity sensors which potentially detect single or few biomolecules.(More)
— This paper presents a recently developed hand-held biochip-based microsystem. The microsystem is based on a magneto-resistive array biochip composed of a number of sensing sites with magnetic tunneling junctions (MTJ) and diodes. To drive the MTJ, different techniques are addressed with different types of signals. Filtering strategies are also presented,(More)
Electroencephalography (EEG) signals' interpretation is based on waveform analysis, where meaningful information should emerge from a plethora of data. Nonetheless, the continuous increase in computational power and the development of new data processing algorithms in the recent years have put into reach the possibility of analyzing raw EEG signals.

This paper presents a microsystem for biomolecular recognition (DNA, enzymes) based on a biochip, which uses magnetic field arraying of magnetically tagged biomolecules and high sensitivity sensors for single biomolecule detection. The microsystem provides the electronic circuitry for addressing, reading out and sensing each of the 16 × 16 magnetoresistive(More)
