Kassanos, P., Constantinou, L., Triantis, I. & Demosthenous, A. (2014). An Integrated Analog Readout for Multi-Frequency Bioimpedance Measurements. IEEE Sensors Journal, 14(8), pp. 2792-2800. doi: 10.1109/jsen.2014.2315963


Bioimpedance spectroscopy is used in a wide range of biomedical applications. This paper presents an integrated analog readout, which employs synchronous detection to perform galvanostatic multi-channel, multi-frequency bioimpedance measurements. The circuit was fabricated in a 0.35-μm CMOS technology and occupies an area of 1.52 mm2. The effect of random dc offsets is investigated, along with the use of chopping to minimize them. Impedance measurements of a known RC load and skin (using commercially available electrodes) demonstrate the operation of the system over a frequency range up to 1 MHz. The circuit operates from a ±2.5 V power supply and has a power consumption of 3.4-mW per channel.
