Student project: CMOS dielectric spectroscopy for bacteria sensing applications
What you will do
Dielectric spectroscopy is a miniaturized, low-cost, fast and portable technology for many sensing applications, e.g., cancer cell detection, food freshness monitoring, or
chemical sensing. In this project, we will develop a high-frequency CMOS-based dielectric readout circuits as a miniaturized sensor.
The tasks in this project include:
- Design a CMOS wideband RF (kHz to GHz) circuit as a dielectric sensor readout circuit.
- Design and optimize the on-chip electrode.
- Design and tape-out in standard CMOS process.
- Integrate the electrode and readout circuits in a low-cost PCB platform.
- Work with imec experts from different teams to design experiment for real applications.
