ICE Lab & ibrAIn Research Centre

  •  Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Aarhus University    


The Integrated circuits and electronics Laboratory (ICE) Lab at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the iBrAIn centre focuses on developing novel AI hardware into ultra-low power and miniaturized brain implants for monitoring, diagnosis, and treatment of neurodegenerative brain diseases such as Parkinson, epilepsy, etc. ICElab works on the development of novel brain interfacing technologies ranging from implantable neural recording systems to wearable neuromodulation systems (optical, electrical, and ultrasonic), closed-loop systems for treatment purposes (using drug-delivery or neuromodulations), ultra-low power chip design, MicroElectroMechanical systems (MEMS), energy harvesting mechanisms, novel sensors (e.g., spintronic sensors),  and brain-inspired computing systems like CMOS-based spiking neuromorphic computing systems, neuromorphic computing using emerging technologies (e.g., spintronics).
