The drive towards an intelligent environment will give the first impulse to several sensor applications such as intelligent prostheses, sport evaluation, observation of livestock, etc. Conventional interfaces are tailored towards the requirements of one of these applications. This leads to a high design cost for these autonomous sensor systems. An ultra low power generic sensor interface offers an attractive solution for this problem. It allows us to adapt the front-end after it is taken in use… CONTINUE READING
