Abstract
APPLIED RESEARCH CORPORATION (ARC) PLANS TO DEVELOP A NEW GENERATION OF BIOMAGNETIC INSTRUMENTATION BASED ON SUPERCONDUCTING QUANTUM INTERFERENCE DEVICES (SQUIDS). MORE SPECIFICALLY, ARC WILL DEVELOP INEXPENSIVE, USER-FRIENDLY MULTICHANNEL ELECTRONICS FOR SQUID SIGNAL CONDITIONING AND DIGITIZATION. TOGETHER WITH THE AVAILABILITY OF LIQUID NITROGEN SQUIDS, THIS WILL PERMIT THE DEVELOPMENT OF A REASONABLY INEXPENSIVE DEVICE (LESS THAN $30,000) FOR A 16-CHANNEL MAGNETOCARDIOGRAPH OR MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPH. IN PHASE I, ARC WILL DEVELOP A 4-CHANNEL MAGNETOCARDIOGRAPH WITH AN EXCELLENT SIGNAL/NOISE RATIO. ELECTRONIC READOUT (PREAMP AND LOCK-IN AMPLIFIER) WILL BE MINIATURIZED ONBOARD; AN ADC AND IEEE-488 BUS WILL BE INCLUDED. IN PHASE II, A 32-CHANNEL MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPH WILL BE DEVELOPED.
