Résumé: This tutorial will provide an overview of droplet-based "digital" microfluidics, technology platforms, and applications followed by computer-aided design (CAD), design-for-testability, and reconfiguration aspects of digital microfluidic biochips. Synthesis tools will be presented to map behavioral descriptions to a digital microfluidic platform, and generate an optimized schedule of bioassay operations, chip layout, and droplet-flow paths. Testing techniques will be described to detect faults after manufacture and during field operation. On-line and off-line reconfiguration techniques will be presented to bypass faults once they are detected. The problem of mapping a small number of chip pins to a large number of array electrodes will also be covered. The target audience is university researchers/professors, Ph.D. students, and IC designers who are interested in multidisciplinary topics and the emerging area of microfluidic biochips, and who are looking for exciting new application areas for electronic chip/system design and CAD algorithms.
