Introduction to Special Issue on Implantable Electronics
Swarup Bhunia, Darrin J. Young
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180879

Early History and Challenges of Implantable Electronics
Wen H. Ko
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180880

Implantable systems for biomedical research and clinical care are now a flourishing field of activities in academia as well as industrial institutions. The broad field includes experimental explorations in electronics, mechanical, chemical, and...

Implantable Closed-Loop Epilepsy Prosthesis: Modeling, Implementation and Validation
Muhammad Tariqus Salam, Mohamad Sawan, Dang Khoa Nguyen
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180881

In this article, we present an implantable closed-loop epilepsy prosthesis, which is dedicated to automatically detect seizure onsets based on intracerebral electroencephalographic (icEEG) recordings from intracranial electrode contacts and...

Low-Power Architecture for Epileptic Seizure Detection Based on Reduced Complexity DWT
Mrigank Sharad, Sumeet K. Gupta, Shriram Raghunathan, Pedro P. Irazoqui, Kaushik Roy
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180882

In this article, we present a low-power, user-programmable architecture for discrete wavelet transform (DWT) based epileptic seizure detection algorithm. A simplified, low-pass filter (LPF)-only-DWT technique is employed in which energy contents...

Wireless, Ultra-Low-Power Implantable Sensor for Chronic Bladder Pressure Monitoring
Steve J. A. Majerus, Steven L. Garverick, Michael A. Suster, Paul C. Fletter, Margot S. Damaser
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180883

The wireless implantable/intracavity micromanometer (WIMM) system was designed to fulfill the unmet need for a chronic bladder pressure sensing device in urological fields such as urodynamics for diagnosis and neuromodulation for bladder control....

An Implantable Release-on-Demand CMOS Drug Delivery SoC Using Electrothermal Activation Technique
Yu-Jie Huang, Hsin-Hung Liao, Pen-Li Huang, Tao Wang, Yao-Joe Yang, Yao-Hong Wang, Shey-Shi Lu
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180884

An implantable system-on-a-chip (SoC) integrating controller/actuation circuitry and 8 individually addressable drug reservoirs is proposed for on-demand drug delivery. It is implemented by standard 0.35-μm CMOS technology and post-IC...

Nonvolatile Memories as the Data Storage System for Implantable ECG Recorder
Zhenyu Sun, Xiang Chen, Yaojun Zhang, Hai Li, Yiran Chen
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2180878.2180885

In this article, we propose a data storage system with the emerging nonvolatile memory technologies used for the implantable electrocardiography (ECG) recorder. The proposed storage system can record the digitalized real-time ECG waveforms...
