Integrated Circuits and Microsystems for Emerging Biomedical Applications

Share

This is a virtual dinstinguished lecture program jointly organised by Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, AU Engineering, Aarhus University and IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS), Denmark Section.


In this talk, it will be presented how IC technologies and integrated microsystems enable emerging
biomedical applications such as life-saving/changing miniature medical devices, surgical
procedures with less invasiveness and morbidity, low-cost preventive healthcare solutions in daily
life, effective chronic disease management, point-of-care diagnosis for early disease detection,
high-throughput bio sequencing and screening for new discovery, and groundbreaking brainmachine interface from a deep understanding of human intelligence. It will also be shown that the
vital role of the IC technology in biomedical microsystems is providing a seamless interface to
various sensors and actuators, high-efficiency operation with various energy sources (especially,
renewable ones), high-level integration and miniaturization, embedded intelligence, and
connectivity.

Topic:

Integrated Circuits and Microsystems for Emerging Biomedical Applications

Many factors, such as extended lifespan, prevailing obesity, and aging population are increasing
the healthcare cost dramatically. Recent advances in semiconductor technologies, as well as
innovations in IC design techniques, have led to microsystems with sensing and processing
capabilities that can supplement, improve, or even entirely replace traditional diagnostic and
therapeutic procedures. Integrated biomedical solutions based on IC technologies can offer
remarkably effective ways of timely diagnosis, treatment, and management of diseases at a very
low cost, never seen before.
In this talk, it will be presented how IC technologies and integrated microsystems enable emerging
biomedical applications such as life-saving/changing miniature medical devices, surgical
procedures with less invasiveness and morbidity, low-cost preventive healthcare solutions in daily
life, effective chronic disease management, point-of-care diagnosis for early disease detection,
high-throughput bio sequencing and screening for new discovery, and groundbreaking brainmachine interface from a deep understanding of human intelligence. It will also be shown that the
vital role of the IC technology in biomedical microsystems is providing a seamless interface to
various sensors and actuators, high-efficiency operation with various energy sources (especially,

Biography:

Minkyu Je received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science, from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea, in
1998 and 2003, respectively.
In 2003, he joined Samsung Electronics, Giheung, Korea, as a Senior Engineer and worked on
multi-mode multi-band RF transceiver SoCs for GSM/GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA standards. From
2006 to 2013, he was with Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Agency for Science, Technology
and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. He worked as a Senior Research Engineer from 2006 to
2007, a Member of Technical Staff from 2008 to 2011, a Senior Scientist in 2012, and a Deputy
Director in 2013. From 2011 to 2013, he led the Integrated Circuits and Systems Laboratory at
IME as a Department Head. In IME, he led various projects developing low-power 3D
accelerometer ASICs for high-end medical motion sensing applications, readout ASICs for
nanowire biosensor arrays detecting DNA/RNA and protein biomarkers for point-of-care
diagnostics, ultra-low-power sensor node SoCs for continuous real-time wireless health
monitoring, and wireless implantable sensor ASICs for medical devices, as well as low-power
radio SoCs and MEMS interface/control SoCs for consumer electronics and industrial
applications. He was also a Program Director of NeuroDevices Program under A*STAR Science
and Engineering Research Council (SERC) from 2011 to 2013, and an Adjunct Assistant
Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National University of
Singapore (NUS) from 2010 to 2013. He was an Associate Professor in the Department of
Information and Communication Engineering at Daegu Gyenogbuk Institute of Science and
Technology (DGIST), Korea from 2014 to 2015. Since 2016, he has been an Associate Professor
in the School of Electrical Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology
(KAIST), Korea.
His main research areas are advanced IC platform development including smart sensor interface
ICs and ultra-low-power wireless communication ICs, as well as microsystem integration
leveraging the advanced IC platform for emerging applications such as intelligent miniature
biomedical devices, ubiquitous wireless sensor nodes, and future mobile devices. He is an author
of 5 book chapters and has more than 290 peer-reviewed international conference and journal
publications in the areas of sensor interface IC, wireless IC, biomedical microsystem, 3D IC,
device modeling and nanoelectronics. He also has more than 50 patents issued or filed. He has
served on the Technical Program Committee and Organizing Committee for various international
conferences, symposiums and workshops including IEEE International Solid-State Circuits
Conference (ISSCC), IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC) and IEEE
Symposium on VLSI Circuits (SOVC).
