Biography

Mousa Karimi is with Biomedical Microsystems Laboratory at Laval University currently. His research interests are implantable microsystems, analog/digital/mixed-mode integrated circuits, wireless neural interfacing, and high voltage converters design. He obtained Mitacs scholarship for collaboration with Thales-MITACS-NSERC/CRD as his Ph.D. project. He was with Research Laboratory for Integrated Circuits and Systems (ICAS), Faculty of Electrical Engineering, K.N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, where did his Master thesis on wireless interfacing design for bidirectional data comunication with implated microsystems and also wireless power transmission (WPT) to implanted devices. The result of his Master research presented in IEEE BioCAS 2012 and 2014 conferences and published in Electronic Express (ELEX) Journal. He got his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Islamec Azad University (Boushehr Branch) where he implemented a reader for RFID contactless smart cards.

Project : Reconfigurable sensor interfaces for BD429 bus

The BD429 data bus works as a sensor interface (SenInt) for bidirectional data communication between sensors and the main computer in avionic applications. Designing transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) circuits for BD429 is the goal of this collaborative research project with Thales Canada Inc. This work is a part of a project entitled Versatile Systems-on-Chip Integration to Reduce Aircraft Weight and Gas Emission. Since all systems in avionics applications are supposed to be designed for harsh environments, compromise the functionality of very high-density chips, including electromagnetic interference, lightning strikes, and cosmic radiations have to be considered. Besides, a versatile reconfigurable system, meeting the requirement of reliability in these critical applications, is recommended.
