Analog Signal Processing for Portable Medical Electronics
Speaker: Refet Firat Yazicioglu, IMEC
Series: Topical Seminars
Location: Engineering Quadrangle B205
Date/Time: Friday, April 29, 2011, 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Analog front-end circuit design for bio-medical electronics has been long accepted as the integration of precision components with powerful DSP modules. Together with the shift of interest from data centric signal monitoring towards patient centric signal monitoring, this definition has changed dramatically putting stringent constraints on the power budgets of building blocks. This talk will target these constraints and challenges from analog circuit design point of view by addressing power efficient and robust biomedical signal acquisition techniques.
Refet Firat Yazicioglu is Senior Researcher and R&D Team Leader at IMEC, where he is leading the activities on Analog Integrated Circuit design for portable and implantable biomedical applications. He has received the M.S. degrees in Electronics Engineering from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, 2003, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronics Eng. from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, in 2008. Firat has (co)authored over 35 publications, 3 book chapters, and a book on ultra-low-power circuit and system design for biomedical applications.
