Description This unit will cover recent advances in biomedical electronics including electronic diagnostic devices, implanted devices, human-computer-interface, bioinstrumentation and neuromorphic engineering. Topics covered span from the bio-electromagnetism and related applications to regulatory aspects (IEC standards and TGA/FDA approval processes) and electrical safety of instrumentation. This unit will have a strong practical design focus with laboratories and tutorials focused on the design of real instrumentation (including manufacturing) dealing with real biomedical signals.
