BPN823: Automated System for Assembling a High-Density Microwire Neural Recording Array


Assembly at the microscale involves manipulation of one or more components relative to another in order to create a microstructure or device composed of these two or more components that would be difficult or impossible to monolithically fabricate. One specific class of problems that is well suited to microassembly rather than microfabrication is the creation of very high aspect ratio out-of-plane microstructures. As size and complexity of these out-of-plane microstructures grows, it becomes compelling if not necessary to automate the device assembly. To this end, we are developing an automated assembly system for one such device, a microwire-style microelectrode array (MEA) for textit{in-vivo}neural recording and stimulation.
