A MICRO ULTRA LOW POWER RF RADIO FOR NEURAL SIGNAL RECORDING

Rui Zhong, Richard Liu, Haleh Fotowat, Fabrizio Gabbiani

Abstract

This paper reports the development of a small, light-weight and mini-battery operated low power radio transmitter for neural signal recording. This system allows recording of neural signal down to the level of 50 μV. A micromachined electrode is used to obtain these signals. The neural signal is then amplified 10,000 times and transmitted to the receiver at 433 MHz. The manufactured radio system is 7 mm by 6 mm in size and 0.5 gram in weight, with a power consumption of 750 μW. Radio functionality is tested and verified on locusts.
