One-Cubic-Millimeter Circuit Can Power Itself
Added Nov 13, 2012 | Rate View top rated
Tackling the challenge of power consumption on miniaturized computer systems, researchers at the University of Michigan College of Engineering have designed a one-cubic-millimeter circuit that can power itself. This particular device is aimed at inter-ocular pressure monitoring for glaucoma diagnosis and management, and can be implanted in the eye with a simple outpatient technique. U-M scientists, including Electrical Engineering and Computer Science professors Dennis Sylvester and David Blaauw, hope to make the sensors in volume at the U-M and disseminate them to other researchers in an effort to open up new areas of application.
