Nowadays, with the economic development and social evolution, people are paying more and more attention on the life quality with an increasing demand on wellness. The emergence and development of new wireless medical and health care equipment is one of the major forces driving the wellness revolution. The trends of miniaturization, intelligentialization and informationization can be observed for wireless medical and health care products. The silicon-based CMOS technology is one of the major technologies that lead to these trends. This book will focus on the CMOS IC design techniques for wireless medical and health care applications, featured with high integration level and low power consumption
