Electrophysiology, miniaturized.™

Welcome to Intan Technologies, leader in the development of specialized integrated circuits for biological sensing.

We create innovative low-power microchips to acquire bioelectric signals such as EMG, ECG/EKG, ECoG, EEG, neural action potentials, local field potentials, and intracellular voltages and currents. Our products are used by biomedical companies and research groups in 50 countries around the world.

In 2013 we launched our RHD2000 series digital electrophysiology interface chips to sense extracellular biopotentials. In 2016 we released the CLAMP series patch clamp chips to sense intracellular voltages and currents, and our RHS2000 digital stimulation/amplifier chips for bidirectional extracellular communication. These revolutionary devices integrate low-noise amplifiers, programmable filters, analog-to-digital converters, and digital I/O buses onto a single piece of silicon. Recording electrodes are connected to one side of the chip, and digital data streams out the other side.

By transforming weak electrode signals directly into a digital data stream, Intan microchips replace all analog instrumentation and digitizing circuitry in electrophysiological monitoring and data acquisition systems. The small size and low power consumption of Intan chips enables the miniaturization of front-end electronics for electrophysiology recording instruments, brain activity mapping systems, advanced prosthetic interfaces, and wearable or portable biopotential recording systems.

At Intan Technologies, our mission is to provide flexible, high performance solutions for next-generation scientific, medical, and consumer devices that interface with biopotential signals. With years of expertise in both state-of-the-art microchip design and modern electrophysiology techniques, we have a deep understanding of the nature of biological signals and how best to acquire them using advanced integrated circuit technology.
