The rapid advancement of radio-frequency (RF), infrared, and optical technologies has enabled many wireless-sensing approaches for novel biomedical applications, such as implantable medical devices, characterization of biological materials, wireless neural prostheses, non-contact health monitoring, and remote-human-motion classification. Some applications entered human daily life shortly after... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This paper provides a comprehensive overview of the recent advances in the field of wireless contactless sensing circuits and systems for healthcare and biomedical applications. In particular, special emphasis is made on wireless implantable devices, radar-based techniques to detect human motions, such as vital signs or gestures, wireless neural interfacing and prosthesis, and the...

A high-voltage-tolerant and power-efficient stimulator with adaptive power supply is proposed and realized in a 0.18-μm 1.8-V/3.3-V CMOS process. The self-adaption bias technique and stacked MOS configuration are used to prevent issues of electrical overstress and gate-oxide reliability in lowvoltage transistors. The on-chip high-voltage generator uses a pulse-skip regulation scheme to... Read more on IEEE Xplore
