The current issue of Medical Design Briefs carries an interesting article titled “Designing an ASIC Chip to Control an Implantable Glucose Measurement Device” by Uwe Guenther of ZMDI (Dresden, Germany) and Andrew DeHennis of Senseonics (formerly known as “Sensors for Medicine and Science, Inc.” in Germantown, MD).

Zentrum Mikroelektronik Dresden AG (ZMDI), Dresden, Germany, partnered with Senseonics and developed a new microchip for use in Senseionics’ fluorescence-based implantable glucose sensor. According to the article, “ZMDI’s design specifications for this application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), which is implemented as a system- on-a-chip (SoC) for control and analysis had to meet the following main requirements: LED driver, measurement and analysis of reflected light, data pre-processing, memory, wireless interface for data transfer, no battery due to extremely low power and low voltage requirements, medical certification, and special form factor.”
