Part of the Analog Circuits and Signal Processing book series (ACSP)


Previous chapters present the design and implementation of different types of AEs. In this chapter, conclusions will be drawn based on the experimental results obtained with these AE-based ASICs. In addition, suggestions for future brain monitoring ASICs are presented.
