Abstract: This paper extends our previous work of designing a wireless data acquisition unit (DAQ) to interface Micro-electromechanical (MEMS) foot plantar pressure sensors. The designed integrated circuit (IC) is proposed for an in-shoe wireless pressure measurement system in normal daily life activities. The wireless communication transmitter is aimed to operate at 2.45 GHz industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) band. This extension paper presents the enhancement of the previous design. The newly designed chip is implemented using 180 nm complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology and displayed an improve performance compared to the original work. The chip is developed to interface MEMS sensors that has been designed, fabricated and tested. The IC had completely designed and under fabrication process.


Keywords: Foot plantar pressure, Pressure sensor, Wireless system
