Abstract

We report a bolt-shape minimally-invasive neural interface, BioBolt, for epidural recording. Sixteen-channel analog front-end has been implemented in 0.25μm technology with low-power wireless data transmission using intra-skin communication. The fabricated ASIC consumes 365μW, occupies 3.2 mm x 0.9 mm, and obtains a 10kb/s data rate.
