This paper presents a bidirectional brain machine interface (BMI) microsystem designed for closed-loop neuroscience research, especially experiments in freely behaving animals. The system-on-chip (SoC) consists of 16-channel neural recording front-ends, neural feature extraction units, 16-channel programmable neural stimulator back-ends, in-channel programmable closed-loop controllers, global...

Next-generation brain machine interfaces demand a high-channel-count neural recording system to wirelessly monitor activities of thousands of neurons. A hardware efficient neural signal processor (NSP) is greatly desirable to ease the data bandwidth bottleneck for a fully implantable wireless neural recording system. This paper demonstrates a complete multichannel spike sorting NSP module that... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this paper, a time-domain magnetorelaxometry biosensing scheme is presented using giant magnetoresistive (GMR) sensors to measure the fast relaxation response of superparamagnetic magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) in a pulsed magnetic field. The system consists of an 8 × 10 GMR sensor array, a Helmholtz coil, an electromagnet driver, and an integrator-based analog front-end needed to... Read more on IEEE Xplore
