Findings from Allen Institute for Brain Science Provides New Data on Biomedicine and Biomedical Engineering

May 14, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Fresh data on Biotechnology are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Seattle, Washington, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "This paper presents a self-contained, single-chip biosignal monitoring system with wireless programmability and telemetry interface suitable for mainstream healthcare applications. The system consists of low-noise front end amplifiers, ADC, MICS/ISM transmitter and infrared programming capability to configure the state of the chip."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Allen Institute for Brain Science, "An on-chip packetizer ensures easy pairing with standard off-the-shelf receivers. The chip is realized in the IBM 130 nm CMOS process with an area of 2 x 2 mm(2). The entire system consumes 1.07 mW from a 1.2 V supply. It weighs 0.6 g including a zinc-air battery."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The system has been extensively tested in in vivo biological experiments and requires minimal human interaction or calibration."
