Advancement in sensing schemes has led to the diagnosis and early treatment of killer diseases in the medical field. Sensors which are portable and implantable are in great demand for continuous monitoring of a patient''shealth. There is an increasing demand for a highly sensitive and reliable pressure micro-sensor system and for implantable and non-implantable medical applications. Mr Sundararajan found the prerequisite of a miniaturized device for minimally invasive procedures, posed greater challenges in the complex integrated design of the micro-system. His research explored micro-sensor system designs in the recent advanced CMOS technologies for effective system miniaturization and improved performance. Two monolithically integrated capacitive pressure micro-sensor systems were designed, fabricated and experimentally verified. His research has contributed to the integration of the sensor device and the CMOS signal conditioning circuit, with a specific foundry compatible post-processing in today''sadvanced IC technologies.
