Low power electronics for flexible wearable devices


Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

About the Project

We are seeking a PhD student to work on low power electronics for electrocardiography sensors and long term heart monitoring. Our work will focus on highly miniaturized devices using flexible substrates, suitable for placing on animals. We anticipate the work starting at the discrete prototype level, using off-the-shelf microchips to de-risk key parts of the design (e.g. transmission through water) and to perform power optimization. These systems will be tested on people and on animals, before proceeding to designing key components as a custom microchip to minimize size and power consumption. You will work as part of an established team investigating flexible sensors.

The project will ideally suite those coming from an electronic engineering background interested in low power devices, together with a hands-on approach to problem solving and a willingness to get involved in all stages of the work: electronic design, materials fabrication for novel electrodes, manufacturing and bonding of microchips to flexible substrates, hands on practical testing of completed devices, and machine learning for artifact removal and data processing.

Funding Notes

Funding for UK/EU students is available from the EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership with the University of Manchester. The work is to align with EPSRC project “MultiSense – devising and manufacturing mm-wave high data rate low latency on-skin technologies” (View Website) which runs from October 2019 – October 2022
