  • About this book

  • Describes a variety of problems confronting any designer of implantable microelectronic devices for the brain
  • Avoids discipline-specific, technical jargon in order to appeal to a multi-disciplinary audience
  • Includes a focused exploration of the brain-material interface problem, as well as the surgical and skull-mounting issues that impact the choice and success of packaging and interconnect technologies

This book describes the specific packaging and interconnect challenges involved in developing implantable microelectronic and MEMS devices for the brain and will explain a variety of the currently successful approaches. Significant, open problems will also be described, such as development of advanced materials, testing methodologies, and sensing and actuation technologies.
