The Coming of Age of Microfluidics: EDA Solutions for Enabling Biochemistry on a Chip

Zeit: Mon 11.7.2016, 10:00, 60 Minuten
Ort: S3 058, Computer Science Building (Science Park 3)

Zusammenfassung

This talk offers attendees an opportunity to bridge the semiconductor ICs/system industry with the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries. This talk will first describe emerging applications in biology and biochemistry that can benefit from advances in electronic "biochips". The presenter will next describe technology platforms for accomplishing "biochemistry on a chip", and introduce the audience to both the droplet-based "digital" microfluidics based on electrowetting actuation and flow-based "continuous" microfluidics based on microvalve technology. Next, the presenter will describe system-level synthesis includes operation scheduling and resource binding algorithms, and physical-level synthesis includes placement and routing optimizations. In this way, the audience will see how a "biochip compiler" can translate protocol descriptions provided by an end user (e.g., a chemist or a nurse at a doctor's clinic) to a set of optimized and executable fluidic instructions that will run on the underlying microfluidic platform. The problem of mapping a small number of chip pins to a large number of array electrodes will also be covered. Finally, sensor feedback-based cyberphysical adaptation will be covered.
