The World's Most Energy-Efficient Biomedical Sensor Hub

Wearable technology, from smart watches to activity trackers, has established a firm position on the consumer market. Wearable devices already offer a large number of features (e.g. tracking sleep, heart rate, activity, etc.) but to really take the technology to the next level a number of challenges need to be overcome. This is especially important to enable the development of medical-grade health care wearables that can truly offer an alternative to the more chunky, medical equipment in hospitals.

To revolutionize wearable technology, imec has started at the bottom of the technology chain, i.e. at chip level. The result is MUSEIC, the industry’s smallest multi-modal, ultra-low power signal acquisition ASIC for medical-grade personal wearable healthcare.
