A 700mV low power low noise implantable neural recording system design.


A low power, low noise implantable neural recording interface for use in a Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is presented in this paper. A two stage neural amplifier and 8 bit Pipelined Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) are integrated in this system. The optimized number of amplifier stages demonstrates the minimum power and area consumption; The ADC utilizes a novel offset cancellation technique robust to device leakage to reduce the input offset voltage. The neural amplifier and ADC both utilize 700mV power supply. The midband gain of neural amplifier is 58.4dB with a 3dB bandwidth from 0.71 to 8.26 kHz. Measured input-referred noise and total power consumption are 20.7╬╝Vrms and 1.90 respectively. The ADC achieves 8 bit accuracy at 16Ksps with an input voltage of ┬▒400mV. Combined simulation and measurement results demonstrate the neural recording interface's suitability for in situ neutral activity recording.
