Integrated potentiostat for detection of Chagas disease


The design of a low‐power‐integrated potentiostat that measures electric current intended for a Chagas disease detection application is presented. This circuit can generate and measure currents from 1 to 10 μA with a relative error under 5%. The remaining part of the circuit consumes only 1.5 μA. The circuit was designed using the 0.6 μm XC06 technology from the X‐FAB, with a total silicon area of 0.24 mm2 (without pads).
