Hybrid Spintronic-CMOS Microsystems – From Wearables to Implantables

22.10.2018 von 17:15 bis 18:00

In recent years, an enormous surge of works is being carried out on developing new methods for sensing and computing microsystems of various kinds of applications ranging from medical diagnostics, implantable electronics to brain-like chips. Implementation of such microsystems using CMOS technology is inefficient in terms of area, performance and power. Such inefficiencies have driven a significant effort to investigate the development of beyond-CMOS microsystems. The hybrid Spintronic-CMOS implementation provides an opportunity to produce and optimise powerful devices for wearable medical diagnostics and implant chips. The seminar will introduce our research at the Microelectronics Lab (meLAB) in microelectronics and magnetic devices with several different works addressing the development of architectures for the implementation of efficient wearable and implantable electronics based on emerging Spintronic-CMOS technologies.

It presents developments and trends in the wearable magnetic sensing systems including sensors and circuit Interfaces focusing on the development of various types of magnetic sensors including Hall-effect, giant magnetoresistances (GMR), Tunnelling Magnetoresistive (TMR) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) technologies. The lecture will also present various approaches for obtaining bendable sensors on flexible and implantable substrates, especially in context with brain implant chips. This will be followed by various alternatives for higher performance electronics including heterogeneously structure with combining the CMOS circuitry interface and non-CMOS sensors.
