First complete millimeter-scale computing system to be implanted in the eye

A prototype implantable eye pressure monitor for glaucoma patients is   believed to contain the first complete millimeter-scale computing   system.
And a compact radio that needs no tuning to find the right  frequency  could be a key enabler to organizing millimeter-scale  systems into  wireless sensor networks. These networks could one day  track pollution,  monitor structural integrity, perform surveillance, or  make virtually  any object smart and trackable.
Both developments at the University of Michigan College of Engineering are significant  milestones in the march toward millimeter-scale computing, believed to  be the next electronics frontier.
Researchers  presented papers on each Feb. 22 at the International  Solid-State  Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco. The work is  being led by  three faculty members in the U-M Department of Electrical  Engineering  and Computer Science: professors Dennis Sylvester and David  Blaauw, and  assistant professor David Wentzloff.
