Inter-university Microelectronics Centre (IMEC)

Carolina Mora Lopez - PhD, Principal Investigator

Carolina is a principle scientist and leader of the Circuits for Neural Interfaces team at imec. She received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2012 from the KU Leuven, Belgium, in collaboration with imec, Belgium. Her team is responsible for innovating, conceiving and delivering all the ASIC and system solutions of our neurotech program.

In this project, her team will design, simulate and test the recording and stimulation ASIC that will interface with the implantable flexible electrodes, as well as the whole acquisition system that controls this chip.

Bogdan Raducanu - PhD

Bogdan Raducanu received the Ph.D. degree from KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2018 in collaboration with IMEC, Belgium, working towards development of high throughput neural implants. He is currently working with IMEC as a Senior Researcher, focusing on designing microelectronic solutions for high density neural interfaces, implantable, and wearable electronics.

In this project, Bogdan will be leading the design of the neural stimulation and recording ASIC that connects to the implantable flexible electrodes. He will also support the development of the data-acquisition system.

Patrick Hendrickx

Patrick Hendrickx is a design engineer with 30 years of experience in the development and production of electronic systems (HW & SW) for industrial, medical, avionics and space applications. Some of his realizations are module construction for the space projects SWOT & EXOMARS, design of professional GNSS receivers, and development of kernel code for multi-DSP vision inspection systems. Within this project, he is involved in the design and testing of the data-acquisition system for the neural stimulation and readout ASICs developed by imec.
