Battery life specifications drive the power consumption requirements of integrated circuits in implantable, wearable, and portable medical devices. In this paper, we present an embedded processor platform chip using an ARM Cortex-M3 suitable for mapping medical applications requiring microwatt power consumption. Ultra-low-power operation is achieved via 0.5-1.0 V operation, a 28 fW/bit fully differential subthreshold 6T SRAM, a 90%-efficient DC-DC converter, and a 100-nJ fast Fourier transform… CONTINUE READING
