Design and implementation of a wireless capsule suitable for autofluorescence intensity detection in biological tissues.
We report on the design, fabrication, testing, and packaging of a miniaturized system capable of detecting autofluorescence (AF) from mammalian intestinal tissue. The system comprises an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), light-emitting diode, optical filters, control unit, and radio transmitter. The ASIC contains a high-voltage charge pump and single-photon avalanche diode detector (SPAD). The charge pump biases the SPAD above its breakdown voltage to operate in Geiger mode.
