An integrated circuit for wireless real-time monitoring of neurochemical activity in the nervous system is described. The chip is capable of conducting high-resolution amperometric measurements in four settings of the input current. The chip architecture includes a first-order Delta Sigma modulator (Delta Sigma M) and a frequency-shift-keyed (FSK)(More)
An integrated circuit for real-time wireless monitoring of neurochemical activity in the nervous system is described. The chip is capable of conducting measurements in both fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FSCV) and amperometry modes for a wide input current range. The chip architecture employs a second-order DeltaSigma modulator (DeltaSigmaM) and a(More)
Cardiotocography is used to monitor the effect of contractions on fetal heart rate (FHR) and is used in the final trimester of pregnancy to detect fetal distress. This simple and efficient (patent-pending) architecture for Cardiotocography employs the Doppler technique to measure Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) and is scalable to any number of FHR monitors. The(More)
A wireless and mobile system for concurrent non-invasive monitoring of fetal heart rate and uterine contractions is described. The end-to-end system consists of a wearable Doppler ultrasound and pressure sensing front-end equipped with short range radio, mobile cellular gateway for wide area communication, web server, and browser based user interface for(More)
This paper reports on technology development at the sensor and circuit levels for wireless transmission of fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FSCV) in neurochemical detection. Heavily conductive, boron-doped diamond is selectively deposited onto the polished tip of a tungsten microelectrode to fabricate versatile, implantable, micro-needle microprobes capable of(More)
In this paper a wireless modular, multi-modal, multi-node patch platform is described. The platform comprises low-cost semi-disposable patch design aiming at unobtrusive ambulatory monitoring of multiple physiological parameters. Owing to its modular design it can be interfaced with various low-power RF communication and data storage technologies, while the(More)
A 16-channel chip for wireless in vivo recording of chemical and electrical neural activity is described. The 7.83-mm2 IC is fabricated using a 0.5-microm CMOS process and incorporates a 71-microW, 3rd-order, configurable, DeltaSigma modulator per channel, achieving an input-referred noise of 4.69 microVrms in 4-kHz BW and 94.1 pArms in 5-kHz BW for(More)
This paper reports on a miniaturized device for wireless monitoring of extracellular dopamine levels in the brain of an ambulatory rat using fast-scan cyclic voltammetry at a carbon-fiber microelectrode. The device comprises integrated circuitry for neurochemical recording fabricated in 0.5-microm double-poly triple-metal CMOS technology, which is assembled(More)
