Microphonics in biopotential measurements with capacitive electrodes

Pablo S. Luna-Lozano; Ramon Pallas-Areny 2010 Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2010

Biopotential measurements with capacitive electrodes do not need any direct contact between electrode and skin, which saves the time devoted to expose and prepare the contact area when measuring with conductive electrodes. However, mechanical vibrations resulting from physiological functions such as respiration and cardiac contraction can change the capacitance of the electrode and affect the recordings. This transformation of mechanical ...

  • Non-Failure Analysis for Logic Programs

    We provide a method whereby, given mode and (upper approximation) type information, we can detect procedures and goals that can be guaranteed to not fail (i.e., to produce at least one solution or not terminate). The technique is based on an intuitively very simple notion, that of a (set of) tests "covering" the type of a set of variables. We show that the problem of determining a covering is undecidable in general, and give decidability and complexity results for the Herbrand and linear arithmetic constraint systems. We give sound algorithms for determining covering that are precise and efficient in practice. Based on this information, we show how to identify goals and procedures that can be guaranteed to not fail at runtime. Applications of such non-failure information include programming error detection, program transformations and parallel execution optimization, avoiding speculative parallelism and estimating lower bounds on the computational costs of goals, which can be used for granularity control. Finally, we report on an implementation of our method and show that better results are obtained than with previously proposed approaches.

  • High Temperature Applications for IC Plastic Encapsulated Packages

    Recently, the trend has been toward higher device operating temperatures. Manufacturers are no longer satisfied with the 0ï¿¿C-to-70ï¿¿ C commercial range, but want products that are rated to 110ï¿¿C or 125ï¿¿C or greater temperature. This desire is driven by many factors, a prime one being automotive needs, where the operating temperature under the hood may reach 200ï¿¿C in the near future. However, such changes must be balanced with need for good reliability and without jeopardizing rated product life. In the case of plastic packages, this concern extends to its elevated temperature stability, both of the device and of the package, especially with respect to the epoxy molding compound. Compounds have made enormous improvements in reliability behavior over the years, under both moist and dry conditions, but still have some inherent shortcomings. For one, epoxy molding compounds are required to meet the Underwriter's Laboratories Flammability Rating of 94V-0. To meet that rating, bromine and antimony are often incorporated as flame retardants. Unfortunately, these elements can act as catalysts to accelerate the intcrmetalllic growth between the gold ball bond and the aluminium bond pad on the silicon chip. The intermetallic growth itself is not detrimental, but the secondary effects of Kirkendall voiding and thermal stresses between the interrnetallic layers are. This phenomenon is typically seen during high temperature storage life reliability testing. Also, many epoxy cresol novalac- based corn pounds have glass transition temperatures of around 150ï¿¿C, but the biphenyl-based compounds recently introduced may range as low as 120ï¿¿C. The question then becomes whether accelerated tests run at very high temperatures accurately reflect field failures. Resin breakdown and other effects manifest at these temperatures may never be seen in the field, yet these tests are re lied upon to indicate good reliability. Another issue to be resolved is finding the upper operating or ambient temperature limit for commercial products in plastic packages, and how to predict reliability and product life. A possible resolution to this concern is multi-functional-based molding compounds. Their glass transition temperatures are typically greater than 190ï¿¿C, insuring that even accelerated tests or high ambient operating temperatures should not affect the composition or the compound. Since the molding compound itself cannot be eliminated from plastic packages, ohviously, additional measures can be tried to meet the criteria. To insure reliable, long-lived products may also require changes in device design, thermal management. and bond pad metallizations and assembly processing, as well as improvements to the molding compound, to reach the criteria of reliable operation at elevated temperatures. Many aspects must be considered to insure adequate reliability while meeting the customers' requirements. In this study, comparisons were made between different compound chernistries-vcrcsol novolac, biphenyl, and multifunctional- using the High Temperature Storage Life Test, at 175ï¿¿C and at 200ï¿¿C. Static Operating Life Testing at 175ï¿¿C was also performed on the multi-functional compound. Failure analysis was performed on a sample of the tested units. However, with the testing temperatures above the glass transition temperatures, over-testing may be an issue and must be considered.
