Bio-inspired Microsystems Laboratory (BiML) dreams of innovative microsystems for implementing future perception beyond five senses of human. We aim to realize them by using modern analog-mixed circuit design techniques, so that people can interface with nature, machine and even their own bodies with many electronic devices seamlessly.
3D Image Sensor
We propose a 3D image sensor that cannot only provide a depth map between a camera and an object, but also obtain its color image in a single imager.
Sub-µW Neural Recording Device
The spike signal in neural activities is an essential event but is fired rarely so that the spike detection can compress large amount of data efficiently. The proposed delta-modulation doesn’t only compress the signal dynamic range, but also enable to extract the amplitude and frequency component of the neural signal, recognizing the spike in the analog domain.
DNA Quantification Chip
We present a label-free CMOS DNA quantification chip to detect the surface potential change affected by negative charge in DNA molecule. Non-surface binding detection allows real-time continuous monitoring of DNA concentrations.
