  • Provides an invaluable reference to state-of-the-art in Bio/CMOS interfaces development
  • Describes new paradigms and theoretical tools required for Bio/CMOS co-design
  • Covers a wide range of application areas, including patient diagnosis and personalized therapy, as well as bio-sensing in implantable systems
  • Includes a wide range of examples of Bio/CMOS interfaces

The application of CMOS circuits and ASIC VLSI systems to problems in medicine and system biology has led to the emergence of Bio/CMOS Interfaces and Co-Design as an exciting and rapidly growing area of research. The mutual inter-relationships between VLSI-CMOS design and the biophysics of molecules interfacing with silicon and/or onto metals has led to the emergence of the interdisciplinary engineering approach to Bio/CMOS interfaces. This new approach, facilitated by 3D circuit design and nanotechnology, has resulted in new concepts and applications for VLSI systems in the bio-world.

This book offers an invaluable reference to the state-of-the-art in Bio/CMOS interfaces.  It describes leading-edge research in the field of CMOS design and VLSI development for applications requiring integration of biological molecules onto the chip. It provides multidisciplinary content ranging from biochemistry to CMOS design in order to address Bio/CMOS interface co-design in bio-sensing applications.
