A 50-Mb/s quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK)/offset quadrature phase-shift keying (O-QPSK) transmitter suitable for biomedical high-quality imaging application is presented. Centered at 915 MHz, the phase modulation is achieved by directly modifying the self-resonant frequency of an LC voltage-controlled oscillator through capacitor bank switching. By(More)
In this paper, an integrated electrocardiogram (ECG) signal-processing scheme is proposed. Using a systematic wavelet transform algorithm, this signal-processing scheme can realize multiple functions in real time, including baseline-drift removal, noise suppression, QRS detection, heart beat rate prediction and classification, and clean ECG reconstruction.(More)
A highly efficient single-input, dual-output AC–DC converter for wireless power transfer in implantable devices is implemented using the 0.18-mm CMOS process. The proposed AC–DC converter, consisting of three rectifiers with cross-coupled NMOS transistors and comparator-driven PMOS transistors, achieves up to 79.5% power conversion efficiency at 13.56 MHz(More)
Neural prosthetics and personal healthcare have increasing need of high channel density low noise low power neural sensor interfaces. The input referred noise and quantization resolution are two essential factors which prevent conventional neural sensor interfaces from simultaneously achieving a good noise efficiency factor and low power consumption.

An integrated CMOS ultrawideband wireless telemetry transceiver for wearable and implantable medical sensor applications is reported in this letter. This high duty cycled, noncoherent transceiver supports scalable data rate up to 10 Mb/s with energy efficiency of 0.35 nJ/bit and 6.2 nJ/bit for transmitter and receiver, respectively. A prototype wireless(More)
OBJECTIVE The primary objective of this study was to validate a novel method of assessing hand hygiene compliance using ultrasound transmitters in patient zones and staff tagged with receivers. The secondary objective was to assess the impact of audio reminders and quantified individual feedback. DESIGN An observational comparison against manual(More)
