2 Minutes Paper

2-minute Paper: Series 1

The "2 minutes paper" initiative wants to stimulate young learners in a more deep understanding of the recent and hot topics in the Circuits and system society (CASS). For this reason, short ( named "2 minutes") videos provide an overview of selected and recently published papers in the framework of the CASS.

These videos would represent a teaser for a more deep understanding of the topic through a careful read of the respective papers. 

We would thank the authors that agreed with our invitation in sharing the insights of their recent works for this first series of the "2-minute paper" initiative.


The 3 videos of the Series 1 of the "2 minutes paper" initiative deal with "Biomedical and Life Science Circuits and Systems",

A brief of the "2-minute paper" videos and the respective papers are listed below. Such papers are from IEEE Transaction of BioCAS (the first and the third) and  TCAS II ( the second). In particular, 


1) in the first "2-minute paper" video, Prof. Andrea De Marcellis will discuss the implantable transcutaneous telemetry for a brain-machine interface that uses a novel optical communication system to achieve a highly energy-efficient link.

Reference paper: 

A. De Marcellis, G. D. P. Stanchieri, M. Faccio, E. Palange and T. G. Constandinou, "A 300 Mbps 37 pJ/bit Pulsed Optical Biotelemetry," in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, vol. 14, no. 3, pp. 441-451, June 2020, doi: 10.1109/TBCAS.2020.2972733.

2) In the second "2-minute paper" video  Prof. Virgilio Valente presents a CMOS potentiostat that integrates a control amplifier, a dual-slope ADC and a wireless unit on the same chip.

Reference paper: 

V. Valente, N. Neshatvar, E. Pilavaki, M. Schormans and A. Demosthenous, "1.2-V Energy-Efficient Wireless CMOS Potentiostat for Amperometric Measurements," in IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs, vol. 67, no. 10, pp. 1700-1704, Oct. 2020, doi: 10.1109/TCSII.2019.2944258.

3) In the third "2-minute paper" video Prof. Hardik Pandya reports a novel tool based on near-infrared spectroscopy (Spectral-IRDx) which is a portable, non-contact, and cost-effective system and could provide a rapid and accurate diagnosis of cancer.

Reference paper: 

U. M. Pal et al., "Towards a Portable Platform Integrated With Multispectral Noncontact Probes for Delineating Normal and Breast Cancer Tissue Based on Near-Infrared Spectroscopy," in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, vol. 14, no. 4, pp. 879-888, Aug. 2020, doi: 10.1109/TBCAS.2020.3005971.
