Lab full name
Design of Electronic Integrated Sistems
Research Activities

The Design of Integrated Systems Laboratory (DEIS Lab) has been involved in several national and international research projects, gaining multidisciplinary background knowledge aiming  to import them to the field of applied electronics.  The cardinal skills stem from decades of experience, and concern:
•    Design of silicon detectors, sensors, and mixed signal read-out circuits
•    Bio-sensors
•    IC electronics for Brain Machine Interface
•    Testing of analog and mixed-signal ICs and Design-for –Testability (DfT)
•    Implementation of Wireless Sensors Network
o    WSN for real-time environmental monitoring (Healthcare and Wellbeing, Food safety and certification fields)
•    Design of ERS MEMS Vibrational Electrostatic Energy Harvester
•    Design of Remotely Powered Wireless Systems
The growing interests in the e-health area and the ongoing evolution in active and assisted living (AAL) solutions has led to an in-depth study of still potentially unexplored thematic.  Aiming to provide highly innovative solutions in these fields, the DEIS Lab team has acquired skills in:
•    Design and Implementation of Bio-signal conditioning chains
o    Design of gain stages, filters and proper ADC selection.
•    FPGA programming focused to the prototyping of on-line managed Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)
o    Low energy (low computational effort) implementations
•    Interfacing and analysis of bio-signals by using FPGA
o    Fall Risk assessment and prevention
o    Gait Analysis Evaluation
o    Muscle strain trend definition
•    Design and testing of algorithms for bio-signals analysis
o    Reliable P300 (EEG Event Related Potential) monitoring for early neurodegenerative diseases diagnosis
o    Movement Related Potentials (EEG) extraction combined with EMG by FPGA
•    Design and testing of tools for the automatic optimization of circuit parameters
o    Multi-level optimization for Class-E PA  by using State Space Model
