Special CESG Seminar on Engineering Practice: Implantable Electronic Migration at Biotronik

November 14, 2017 @ 2:20 pm - 3:20 pm


“Implantable Electronic Migration at Biotronik”

David Genzer ’83

Director of IC Design and Development – Texas Biotronik/Micro Systems Engineering Inc.


This talk will focus briefly on the state of Biotronik/MSEI, in the implantable device industry, the aggressive design challenges, and tradeoffs facing the design of implantable device products. A high level overview of the Hardware design and chip architecture of selected products and how these are architected to meet the needs of the customer in this aggressive industry will be covered.


David Genzer PE., ’83, is the Director of IC Design and Development for Biotronik/Micro Systems Engineering Inc. with more than 30 years of experience in the development of systems and mixed-signal integrated circuits for implantable products. His interests include the design and development of biomedical systems using advanced VLSI architectures using Ultra Low Power/Low Voltage battery operated SOC’s for next generation implantable medical devices. His work in various medical devices includes implantable BioMonitors, Pacemaker products, Neuro Implantable SCS devices and next generation “injectable” cardiovascular electronic devices.

David’s work experience includes positions at Micro Systems Engineering Inc. (MSEI or Biotronik) www.biotronik.com, 1999 to present; Director of the IC Design and Development, Intermedics Inc. (Sulzer Intermedics), 1985-1999 as Manager of the IC design group and previously as an IC Designer on the team developing the first single chip implantable pacemaker for Intermedics. Prior to this, he worked at UMC/Mostek Corp. (Now ST Micro) as an IC Development Engineer for various Low Power battery operated IC’s for consumer products.

David received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1983 and a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Houston in 1991. He is also a member of IEEE Solid State Circuits Society (SSCC), a Licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Texas, and member of the EADC committee for Electrical & Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University.
