An ultra-small vital sign monitoring multi-sensing platform
This collaborative research project between iMD research and prof. Benoit Gosselin aims to design and test an tiny, inexpensive and easy-to-use wearable multi-sensing platform to continuously monitor patients remotely, and help greatly to manage COVID-19. The envisioned platform will use CMOS custom integrated circuits and advanced packaging technology to achieve an extreme level of miniaturization. This design will combine ultra-small electronic components available off the shelf (COTS) and custom integrated modules and continuously measure temperature, heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP),
oxygen saturation (SPO2) and respiratory rate (RR) remotely, within a very compact device of extended battery life. ASICs and ultra-small COTS will be combined and interconnected together using an advanced heterogeneous chip integration strategy based on silicon interposers. The power consumption of the whole multi-technology microsystem will be very low, within a few tens of microwatts, in order to extend the battery life.
