Recording and Stimulation Electronics

Lead: IMEC

This work focuses on the design and development of high-density recording and stimulation electronics with state-of-the-art electrical performance.

High channel count stimulation will be the main focus of the design: fully programmable stimulation circuits that can drive large sets of electrodes simultaneously while ensuring charge balancing and safety.

High-density and low-noise recording of multi-unit activity will enable close-loop functionality: neural-response feedback can be used to estimate the efficacy of stimulation and optimize the parameters in real time.

A fast bidirectional digital interface will enable the communication with other hardware components during close-loop operation.
