This text by Sarpeshkar (bioelectronics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) provides a broad overview of the fields of ultra-low-power electronics and bioelectronics, as well as the combination of the two. "On the one hand," he explains," it discusses how to architect robust ultra-low-power electronics with applications in implantable, noninvasive, wireless, sensing, and stimulating biomedical systems. On the other hand, it discusses how bio-inspired architectures from neurobiology and cell biology can revolutionize low-power, mixed signal, and radio-frequency (RF) electronics design." Foundational chapters discuss feedback systems, transistor device physics, noise, and circuit-analysis techniques. Other chapters describe ultra-low-power building-block circuits that are useful in biomedical electronics, followed by chapters that describe the utilization of these circuits in implantable and noninvasive medical systems such as cochlear implants for the deaf, brain implants for the blind and paralyzed, cardiac devices for non-invasive medical monitoring, and biomolecular sensing systems. Additionally, chapters on fundamental principles for ultra-low-power digital, analog, and mixed-signal design are presented.
