Biomedical Microsystems Book Review:

Poised to dramatically impact human health, biomedical microsystems (bioMEMS) technologies incorporate various aspects from materials science, biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, and engineering. Reflecting the highly interdisciplinary nature of this area, Biomedical Microsystems covers the fundamentals of miniaturization, biomaterials, microfabrication, and nanotechnology, along with relevant applications. Written by an active researcher who was recently named one of Technology Review’s Young Innovators Under 35, the book begins with an introduction to the benefits of miniaturization. It then introduces materials, fabrication technology, and the necessary components of all bioMEMS. The author also covers fundamental principles and building blocks, including microfluidic concepts, lab-on-a-chip systems, and sensing and detection methods. The final chapters explore several important applications of bioMEMS, such as microdialysis, catheter-based sensors, MEMS implants, neural probes, and tissue engineering. For readers with a limited background in MEMS and bioMEMS, this book provides a practical introduction to the technology used to make these devices, the principles that govern their operation, and examples of their application. It offers a starting point for understanding advanced topics and encourages readers to begin to formulate their own ideas about the design of novel bioMEMS. A solutions manual is available for instructors who want to convert this reference to classroom use.

Inductive Powering Book Review:

Inductive powering has been a reliable and simple method for many years to wirelessly power devices over relatively short distances, from a few centimetres to a few feet. Examples are found in biomedical applications, such as cochlear implants; in RFID, such as smart cards for building access control; and in consumer devices, such as electrical toothbrushes. Device sizes shrunk considerably the past decades, demanding accurate design tools to obtain reliable link operation in demanding environments. With smaller coil sizes, the link efficiency drops dramatically to a point where the commonly used calculation methods become invalid. Inductive Powering: Basic Theory and Application to Biomedical Systems lists all design equations and topology alternatives to successfully build an inductive power and data link for your specific application. It also contains practical guidelines to expand the external driver with a servomechanism that automatically tunes itself to varying coupling and load conditions.

Analysis of Bipolar and CMOS Amplifiers Book Review:

The classical approach to analog circuit analysis is a daunting prospect to many students, requiring tedious enumeration of contributing factors and lengthy calculations. Most textbooks apply this cumbersome approach to small-signal amplifiers, which becomes even more difficult as the number of components increases. Analysis of Bipolar and CMOS Amplifiers offers students an alternative that enables quick and intuitive analysis and design: the analysis-by-inspection method. This practical and student-friendly text demonstrates how to achieve approximate results that fall within an acceptable range of accuracy and are based on sound scientific principles. Working from the basics of amplifiers and transistors to biasing, single- and multistage amplifiers, current sources and mirrors, and analysis at midband, low, and high frequencies, the author demonstrates the interrelationship between behavior in both the time and frequency domains and balances the discussion between bipolar and CMOS circuits. Each chapter closes with a set of simulation examples in SPICE and MATLAB® that give students hands-on experience applying the concepts and methods using industry-standard tools. Building a practical working knowledge around a solid theoretical framework, Analysis of Bipolar and CMOS Amplifiers prepares your students to meet the challenges of quick and accurate approximations and software-based analysis awaiting them in the workplace.

Energy Harvesting with Functional Materials and Microsystems Book Review:

For decades, people have searched for ways to harvest energy from natural sources. Lately, a desire to address the issue of global warming and climate change has popularized solar or photovoltaic technology, while piezoelectric technology is being developed to power handheld devices without batteries, and thermoelectric technology is being explored to convert wasted heat, such as in automobile engine combustion, into electricity. Featuring contributions from international researchers in both academics and industry, Energy Harvesting with Functional Materials and Microsystems explains the growing field of energy harvesting from a materials and device perspective, with resulting technologies capable of enabling low-power implantable sensors or a large-scale electrical grid. In addition to the design, implementation, and components of energy-efficient electronics, the book covers current advances in energy-harvesting materials and technology, including: High-efficiency solar technologies with lower cost than existing silicon-based photovoltaics Novel piezoelectric technologies utilizing mechanical energy from vibrations and pressure The ability to harness thermal energy and temperature profiles with thermoelectric materials Whether you’re a practicing engineer, academician, graduate student, or entrepreneur looking to invest in energy-harvesting devices, this book is your complete guide to fundamental materials and applied microsystems for energy harvesting.

Analog IC Design Techniques for Nanopower Biomedical Signal Processing Book Review:

As the requirements for low power consumption and very small physical dimensions in portable, wearable and implantable medical devices are calling for integrated circuit design techniques using MOSFETs operating in the subthreshold regime, this book first revisits some well-known circuit techniques that use CMOS devices biased in subthreshold in order to establish nanopower integrated circuit designs. Based on the these findings, this book shows the development of a class-AB current-mode sample-and-hold circuit with an order of magnitude improvement in its figure of merit compared to other state-of-the-art designs. Also, the concepts and design procedures of 1) single-branch filters 2) follower-integrator-based lowpass filters and 3) modular transconductance reduction techniques for very low frequency filters are presented. Finally, to serve the requirement of a very large signal swing in an energy-based action potential detector, a nanopower class-AB current-mode analog multiplier is designed to handle input current amplitudes of more than 10 times the bias current of the multiplier circuit. The invented filter circuits have been fabricated in a standard 0.18 µ CMOS process in order to verify our circuit concepts and design procedures. Their experimental results are reported.
