In recent years, lots of research on biomedical technologies directly using bio-signals such as BMI (Brain Machine Interface) have been performed intensively. Among bio-signals, ECoG (Electrocorticogram), LFP (Local Field Potential), and AP (Action Potential) are usually recorded especially for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of brain diseases. These bio-signals have different amplitudes and frequency bandwidths, and the signal intensities vary accordingly with recording electrode conditions and individual variation. Therefore, a multiple bio-signals recording system having adjustable gain and bandwidth is strongly required. In this study, we designed the adjustable gain amplifier appropriate for the system, and fabricated the module composed of the amplifier and a Si neural probe for the multiple bio-signal recording in the deep brain. Additionally, we verified fundamental functions of the module by in vitro experiments.
