Intan Technologies creates specialized microchips to sense weak electrical signals produced by biological systems. Our mission is to miniaturize the functions of traditional large, bulky electrophysiology instrumentation, and to enable small, low-power scientific, medical, and consumer devices that operate at the interface between technology and biology.
We combine years of custom analog integrated circuit design experience with a deep understanding of electrophysiology to produce innovative devices that are revolutionizing the monitoring and acquisition of signals as diverse as EKG, EMG, and neural spikes.
Intan Technologies was founded by Reid Harrison, PhD.
Dr. Harrison earned a doctorate in the Computation & Neural Systems program at Caltech after studying electrical engineering. From 2000-2010, he was a professor at the University of Utah with appointments in the Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Bioengineering. He has over 20 years of experience designing custom low-power analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for innovative biological sensing applications.
In 2010, Dr. Harrison left the University of Utah and joined Intan Technologies full time. Intan Technologies is located in Los Angeles, California. In 2012, the company launched the revolutionary RHD2000 series of integrated circuits for digital electrophysiology interfaces.
