This paper describes the design of an active electrode integrated circuit (IC) for a wearable electrical impedance tomography (EIT) system required for real time monitoring of neonatal lung function. The IC comprises a wideband high power current driver (up to 6 mAp-p output current), a low noise voltage amplifier and two shape sensor buffers. The IC has been designed in a 0.35-μm CMOS technology. It operates from ±9 V power supplies and occupies a total die area of 5 mm2. Post-layout simulations are presented.
