On the Design of Implantable Neural Recording Interfaces
May 17 @ 10:00 - 11:00
Prof. Ángel Rodríguez-Vázquez
Universidad de Sevilla, Spain
This lecture presents an overview of the architectures and circuits techniques employed for neural recording interfaces. Major emphasis is placed on the LNA front-end with coverage of the following topics:
– Continuous-time LNAs
– Discrete-time LNAs
– Correlated multiple-sampling
– Chopper Amplifier
Examples of complete dual-panel systems designed at IMSE are included as presented in the lecture.
Ángel Rodríguez-Vázquez (IEEE Fellow, 1999) received the bachelor’s (Universidad de Sevilla, 1976) and Ph.D. degrees in physics-electronics (Universidad de Sevilla, 1982) with several national and international awards, including the IEEE Rogelio Segovia Torres Award (1981). After research stays in University of California-Berkeley and Texas A&M University he became a Full Professor of Electronics at the University of Sevilla in 1995. He co-founded the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Sevilla, a joint undertaken of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) and the University of Sevilla and started a Research Lab on Analog and Mixed-Signal Circuits for Sensors and Communications. In 2001 he was the main promotor and co-founder of the start-up company AnaFocus Ltd. and served as CEO, on leave from the University, until June 2009, when the company reached maturity as a worldwide provider of smart CMOS imagers and vision systems-on-chip.
