Implantable electronics play an essential role in the Advancement of medical devices. The introduction of the Pacemaker in 1958 ushered in the era of active implants. Since then, numerous applications have benefited from Implantable electronics, such as cochlear implants and Nerve stimulators. With the advent of integrated circuits and new Manufacturing technologies, implantable electronics have Been used in new areas outside the healthcare industry. Over the years, a wealth of knowledge has accumulated in which specialized design techniques and circuits have Been developed to meet the needs of implantable applications.



This Talk offers a comprehensive overview on the topic of implantable electronics. A primary focus is on presenting the special requirements and specifications of implantable electronics that arise from their respective applications, as well as an overview of the various techniques and methods used to meet these requirements. The electronic components of several implantable devices are presented, in addition to the corresponding manufacturing processes. Discussion of the technical aspects of implantable electronics will be followed by a discussion of the various applications, including emerging trends, directions and challenges.


Speaker Biography

Moustafa Nawito was born in 1979 in Cairo Egypt. He attained his B.Sc. in Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering from the faculty of engineering at Cairo University in 2002 and his M.Sc. in RF Electronics from the German university in Cairo in 2007. In 2017 he attained his Dr.-Ing. (Magna cum laude) in Microelectronics from Stuttgart University in Germany. In 2008 he was appointed as technical manager of the research center for digital broadcasting at GUC in cooperation with Fraunhofer Institute IIS in Erlangen Germany. During this time, he conducted several seminars and workshops on advanced ASIC design for industrial and academic partners. He also cofounded the “Center for Artificial Intelligence” and led a research team to win the international RoboCup scientific competition in 2009. He was also a co-founder of the Egyptian IEEE chapter for computational intelligence which received the best chapter award in 2009. In 2010 he joined the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart IMS CHIPS as a senior ASIC designer, where he was responsible for the development of novel circuits for camera systems, industrial sensors and biomedical intelligent implants for diagnosis and therapy for Bosch, Daimler, and other industrial clients.  In addition, he was the scientific project director of various German and international research projects. In 2017 he founded the startup company Polymath Analog where he works in close cooperation with customers to provide innovative and reliable ASIC solutions for Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and automotive applications, with special emphasis on advanced analog design. He served as lead consultant for the development of a new generation of implantable image sensors for the company Retina Implant AG. In 2020 he joined the IU International University of Applied Sciences as a professor and founding chair of the electrical engineering program. He successfully led the development of the curriculum and the academic accreditation of the newly established department. He also serves as scientific reviewer on several committees for the appointment of new Professors. Prof. Nawito is the author of several publications, including the textbook “CMOS Readout Chips for Implantable Multimodal Smart Biosensors (Springer)”. His research interests include the design of low power data converters, high precision sensors and organic and implantable electronics. He is a senior member of IEEE, VDE, OE-A and other technical societies and associations. He is the chair of the SSCS chapter and secretary of the CAS chapter in Germany. In addition, he is an expert reviewer for the accreditation of engineering university programs for the EU and has conducted on-site reviews in 4 continents.
