B03 – Modelling and design of ultra low power implants for closed loop stimulation

Summary of the work programme

This project provides a highly integrated, ultra-low-power implant with expanded sensorial capabilities to detect biomarkers and with additional processing power to support more complex feedback-controlled stimulation applications. These computationally intensive tasks are constrained by the given tight energy budget and will be addressed by novel algorithm-specific hardware architectures and increased parallelism pursuing an accelerator approach. The sensory placement and reliability will be studied and unified modelling of hardware, software and energy will support the finding of sweet spots in the extremely large design space.
