Title: Electronics for the Human Body
Abstract: Biology is soft, curvilinear and adaptable; silicon technology is rigid, planar and immutable. Electronic systems that eliminate this profound mismatch in properties create opportunities for devices that can intimately integrate with the body, for diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical function with important, unique capabilities in biomedical research and clinical healthcare. Over the last decade a convergence of new concepts in materials science, mechanical engineering, manufacturing techniques and device designs has led to the emergence of diverse classes of ‘biocompatible’ electronics. This talk describes the key ideas, with examples ranging from ‘cellular-scale’ light emitting diodes that can be injected into the brain for optogenetic behavioral control to bioresorbable electronics that can serve as non-antibiotic bacteriocides for treating surgical site infections.
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community of more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives as well as researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area, with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, and intellectual property (IP) companies and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.
