Abstract

Constant device scaling has signifcantly boosted electronic systems design in the digital domain enabling incorporation of more functionality within small silicon area and at the same time allows high-speed computation. This trend has been exploited for developing high-performance miniaturised systems in a number of application areas like communication, sensor network, main frame computers, biomedical information processing etc. Although successful, the associated cost comes in the form of high leakage power dissipation and systems reliability. With the increase of customer demands for smarter and faster technologies and with the advent of pervasive information processing, these issues may prove to be limiting factors for application of traditional digital design techniques. Furthermore, as the limit of device scaling is nearing, performance enhancement for the conventional digital system design methodology cannot be achieved any further unless innovations in new materials and new transistor design are made. To this end, an alternative design methodology that may enable performance enhancement without depending on device scaling is much sought today.

Analogue design technique is one of these alternative techniques that have recently gained considerable interests. Although it is well understood that there are several roadblocks still to be overcome for making analogue-based system design for information processing as the main-stream design technique (e.g., lack of automated design tool, noise performance, efficient passive components implementation on silicon etc.), it may offer a faster way of realising a system with very few components and therefore may have a positive implication on systems performance enhancement. The main aim of this thesis is to explore possible ways of information processing using analogue design techniques in particular in the field of biomedical systems.
