This work presents two current-mode integrated circuits designed for sensor signal preprocessing in embedded systems. The proposed circuits have been designed to provide good signal transfer and fulfill their function, while minimizing the load effects due to building complex conditioning architectures. The processing architecture based on the proposed(More)
Detection and reporting of drug-induced life-threatening potassium disturbances and the study of associated factors under a Pharmacovigilance Program using Laboratory Signals at a Hospital (PPLSH) during a 2-year period. All serum potassium levels <2 mmol/l or >7 mmol/l detected at admission to the hospital, including those of patients who died in the(More)
Background. Methylphenidate (MPH) is widely used in treating children with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Hepatotoxicity is a rare phenomenon; only few cases are described with no liver failure. Case. We report on the case of a 12-year-old boy who received MPH for attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Two months later the patient presented(More)
This paper proposes a battery-compatible electronic interface based on a general purpose lock-in amplifier (LIA) capable of recovering input signals up to the MHz range. The core is a novel ASIC fabricated in 1.8 V 0.18 µm CMOS technology, which contains a dual-phase analog lock-in amplifier consisting of carefully designed building blocks to allow(More)
This paper presents a new CMOS differential voltage-to-frequency converter (VFC) which targets front-end sensor interfacing in wireless sensor network applications. The proposed VFC, designed in a low-cost 0.35 μm CMOS technology supplied at 3 V, achieves high performances: power consumption below 0.3 mW, 0-2V differential input range operation and(More)
This paper presents a complete low-voltage 3V single supply analog lock-in amplifier (LIA) based on phase sensitive detection technique (PSD) for processing AC sensor signals buried in noise in embedded wireless applications. Reference and bias sensor signals are provided by a quadrature oscillator. Experimental results confirm the capability of the(More)
