In this paper, we describe a novel low power, compact, current-mode spike detector circuit for real-time neural recording systems where neural spikes or action potentials (AP) are of interest. Such a circuit can enable massive compression of data facilitating wireless transmission. This design operates by approximating the popularly used nonlinear energy operator (NEO) through standard current mode analog blocks that can operate at low voltages. To reduce sensitivity of threshold setting, this work uses a current-mode oscillator based detection probability estimator (DPE) to reject false positives caused by the background noise. The circuit is implemented in a 65 nm CMOS process and occupies 200 µm x 150 µm of chip area. Operating from a 1 V power supply, it consumes about 88 nW of static power and 10 nJ of dynamic energy per input spike.
