Bioelectronics (ELEC3803)


This unit will cover recent advances in bioelectronics circuits and systems including electronic medical devices, implanted devices, lab on a chip devices, biomedical signal processing and neuromorphic engineering. Regulatory aspects of bioelectronic system design will be addressed including the IEC standards and TGA approval processes. The unit will have a strong practical design focus with laboratories focused on dealing with real life bioelectronic signals and subject-device interfaces. Industry, clinical and research guest lecturers will introduce current topics and design needs.
